Abstract: It is said that 50% of people have haemorrhoids, and that the rest are liars. While this is definitely an overestimation, this condition is very common, but not always symptomatic. The fundamental principles of management are the exclusion of possible co-existent disease, and treatment tailored to the patient's condition and haemorrhoidal grade. There have been recent advances in surgical therapeutic options and a comparison with the established methods is outlined in the following article.
