Eighty-five patients who had thrombosed hemorrhoids underwent emergency hemorrhoidectomy according to St. Mark's Hospital technique, with very good results. All specimens were found to have dilated blood vessels filled with thrombi of different sizes, with irregular, fibrotic or hyalinized vascular walls. Early complications included urinary retention and painful defecation in some patients. Late complications included only skin tags. No sepsis was found among our patients. Although operative bleeding can be tedious during the hemorrhoidectomy, it was a complication in the postoperative period of only one patient. Segmental, open hemorrhoidectomy performed according to the St. Mark's Hospital technique has been shown to be an ideal operation for the treatment of patients who have hemorrhoidal thrombosis, prolapse, edema, and bleeding.
