  Purpose
This multicentre RCT aims to compare two surgical treatments of haemorrhoidal disease: doppler-guided arterial ligation with mucopexy (DGALM) and stapled haemorrhoidopexy according to Longo (SH). The hypothesis of the trial is that the DGALM is at a lesser risk and is more cost-effective than SH. With a large number of patients managed in more than 20 centres, we aim to demonstrate that DGALM has a lower morbidity than SH when treating haemorrhoidal disease. At a lower postoperative risk and a lower risk of sequelae, the DGALM would demonstrate to be cost-effective for health care system and attractive for patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Symptomatic Haemorrhoidal Disease Requiring Surgical Management Device: doppler-guided arterial ligation with mucopexy Device: stapled haemorrhoidopexy according to Longo Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Cost-effectiveness of New Surgical Treatments for Haemorrhoidal Disease - Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Transanal Doppler-guided Arterial Ligation With Mucopexy and Stapled Haemorrhoidopexy (Longo's Technique)

Further study details as provided by Nantes University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Morbidity at 60 days postoperatively of the 2 techniques [ Time Frame: 60-90 days ]
    Morbidity at 60 days postoperatively of the 2 techniques, the morbidity being defined as " the sum of adverse events that occurred during or after the procedure for a period of 2 months".Primary outcome measure is "the percentage of patients with complication, whatever the number of complications per patient and the grade of complication according to the Clavien-Dindo classification".


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Cost-effectiveness of the 2 procedures [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    global cost of the treatment, length of stay, sick leave, cost of complications and sequelae management

  • Success rate at 1 year of each procedure regarding the control of haemorrhoids symptoms [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

    Efficiency regarding the cure of haemorrhoidal symptoms that led to surgery

    • Pain
    • Persisting or recurring symptoms of haemorrhoidal disease
    • Prolapse
    • Bleeding
    • Haemorrhoidal thrombose
    • Occurrence of new anal symptoms / surgical sequelae
    • Incontinence
    • Soiling
    • Pruritus
    • Anal stenosis
    • Constipation
    • Fissure
    • Other rare complication

  • Rate of anatomical or functional sequelae [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    Assessment will be done according to Grade II vs Grade III patients as well as patients without and with antithrombotic treatments
