Benefits for Physicians
The first entirely disposable, single-use device for quick, comfortable hemorrhoid removal, the CRH O’Regan System offers physicians a significant advancement in rubber band ligation. As a next-generation device, it dramatically improves upon the metal instruments used in traditional hemorrhoid banding procedures – and its popularity is growing quickly among gastroenterologists. Here’s why:
- Instead of metal parts that can cause pain or puncture the skin, CRH uses a soft, painless suction device.
- Single-use, disposable implement protects against cross-patient infection with blood borne pathogens such as HIV and hepatitis B and C.
- Can be used on grade I through IV hemorrhoids.
- More than 99% effective and can treat approximately 95% of all hemorrhoid patients.
In addition to these benefits, a large 2005 prospective study of the CRH O’Regan System reported the lowest complication rate ever published at 16 out of 5,424 procedures, or 0.3%. This represents a tenfold reduction in complications compared to conventional rubber band ligation.
In addition to this significant advance, the results showed the CRH O’Regan System to have a recurrence rate of less than 5% – lower than other banding techniques and hemorrhoidectomy.
Safe, effective, and with low complication and recurrence rates, CRH is fast becoming a favorite among gastroenterologists.Back to topˆ
