INTRODUCTION- Due to its increasing trends, now anorectal diseases (i.e. Hemorrhoids) had considered as a major public health problem.
Anorectal diseases has a multifactorial etiology. Hence present study was carried out to explore the surgical profile of patients with anorectal
MATERIAL AND METHOD-The present hospital based cross sectional study was carried out for a period of two years at department of general
surgery, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar memorial hospital, Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Medical college, Raipur (C.G) India, among 105 patients. The
data was entered in the Microsoft Excel Worksheet and analyzed.
RESULTS-It was found that maximum cases were below the age of 40 years i.e. 56.2% followed by 40-60 years of age group constituting 32.4% of
cases. Males suffered more (67.6%) than females. The most common presenting complaint was bleeding in 96.2% of cases followed by pain in
92.4% of the cases. History of constipation was seen in 42.9% of the cases followed by prolapsed and itching in 20% and 17.1% of cases
respectively. Though majority of the patients in the present study had history of bleeding per rectum, but very less of them i.e. about 29.5% were
found to be anemic. Out of the total study subjects, majority i.e. 75.2% had anal fissure followed by external piles in 20% of the cases.
CONCLUSION- Early diagnosis & prompt treatment along with healthy life style adoption will reduce the need of surgery in these patients.
