K227 Haemorrhoid Model

K227 Haemorrhoid Model

Often it starts with a burning sensation on the skin. This is not only painful but also embarrassing, because it appears in a very intimate place, namely in the rectum. Many people have inhibitions to talk about problems with hemorrhoids. Hemorrhoids itself are really only arteriovenous vascular pads at the end of the rectum and are necessary for safe closure of the anus. If the veins will dilate and bulge due to too high inner pressure, hemorrhoids will become a problem. Almost one half of all adults suffer from hemorrhoidalloids, often just called hemorrhoids in colloquial speech.

The formation of hemorrhoids can have many different reasons. These include chronic constipation, wrong alimentation, frequent use of laxatives as well as pregnancy and birth. However, long, intensive pressing and especially overweight are very common causes.
Hemorrhoids are a progressive disease, depending on how severe they are, they will be divided in four stadiums:

Stadium I: In this stadium, the hemorrhoids are only visible with an anoscope. Frequently, the swollen parts will lead to a slight burning and itching sensation.
Stadium II: The hemorrhoids will be pressed out during the defecation, but they will move back afterwards. A burning and itching sensation, exuding wounds and slight bleeding are the most frequent symptoms.
Stadium III: Now the hemorrhoids have been bulging to soft nodules, which can slip out of the rectum on walking. They will not move back itselves and can only put back with a finger. The nodules can become very sore and painful, they will burn and lead to bleedings.
Stadium IV: In this stage the whole inner parts of the rectum can be pressed out, medically one speak of a rectal prolaps. Most cases can only be treated with a surgical procedure, the pain and wound management is very complex and time-consuming.

The presented hemorrhoids model for patient education in about twice life size shows a frontal section through the rectum. Additionally a smaller section can be found on the base as relief. The model shows outer hemorrhoids as well as inner hemorrhoids stage I and II. The additional relief model shows hemorrhoids stage III and IV. Also the anatomical structures of rectum, sphincter and venous plexus are represented.

In the first stadiums hemorrhoids can be treated well with creams, ointments and the right care of the rectum, f. ex. with disposable wash towels or shower toilet modules. Furthermore, high-fiber foods, sufficient fluid intake and sports can help to prevent hemorrhoids. It is also recommendable to avoid sitting too long on the toilet, as the shift in weight can result in “stretching” the vascular pads.
