What isGroup

The CRYOCURETM is an anal device that can be used for the treatment of haemorrhoids (Piles) and anal thrombosis. The cold CRYOCURETM stick causes the blood vessels to constrict, so that the blood flow to the swollen tissue diminishes. As a result of this the haemorrhoids will shrink and the anal oedema decreases. Complaints like pain, itching, burning and loss of blood will be reduced or even disappear.



About 2 cm above the anus opening, a number of bumps are located, which hold back gas and faeces together with the sphincter. When someone needs to pass gas or feels the need to defecate, the cavernous tissue shrinks and the sphincter opens, so gas or faeces can go out. Without this cavernous tissue, a human would not be able to retain their gas and thin faeces. The sphincter cannot do this delicate work on its own. That is why the cavernous tissue is necessary. If, however, the cavernous tissue becomes much larger than necessary and if it is also pushed down due to hard pressure during defecation in combination with gravitational force, and sometimes even hangs outside of the anus and bleeds, we speak of haemorrhoids.

Haemorrhoids are cavernous tissue that has become much too large. What causes cavernous tissue to degenerate into haemorrhoids is still unknown. Possible causes include: weak connective tissue, too spicy food, alcohol, obesity, coughing, use of laxatives and diseases of the rectum.

How are haemorrhoids caused?

The most common complaint is blood loss. The patient loses clear red blood during or after bowel movement. Another complaint is itching. Itching develops because the haemorrhoids are squeezed full of blood. A third complaint is that the patient has the feeling of something in the rectum that feels like a swelling or faeces that does not come out. This feeling arises because of the presence of very large haemorrhoids, which are stowed up with blood on top of that. These haemorrhoids give the feeling of needing to defecate without being able to. Such a large haemorrhoid can sometimes also make it difficult for faeces to come out of the rectum. Pushing during defecation has no result in such cases. Should you do this regardless, the haemorrhoids will come to hang outside of the anus in the long term, and then we speak of a rectal prolapse.
