Hemorrhoids

“It is estimated that 50 percent to 75 percent of U.S. adults suffer at some time from hemorrhoids, (Leibach, J.R. Et al., 1991).”

Taking pressure off the peri-anal area with the Original Buttpillow (TM) can be beneficial for individuals suffering with hemorrhoids or other conditions that are assumed to be hemorrhoids.

 

Patients often attribute all anorectal complaints to hemorrhoids.  Other anorectal conditions include:

  • Anal fissures (tears);
  • Abscess (infection);
  • Fistulas (channel);
  • Incontinence;
  • Pruitis ani (itching and burning of the anal skin);
  • Infectious proctitis (rectal inflammation)
  • Hidradenitis suppurativa (disease of the sweat glands);
  • Condyloma acuminatium (genital warts);
  • Anal carcinoma (cancer)

“Women are particularly at risk (for incontinence) due to progressive denervation (loss of nerves) of the pelvic floor musculature (muscles) from prior birth-related injury, (Toglia, M.R., 1996).”
