Intra-abdominal rectal perforation post-haemorrhoidal artery ligation operation and converted Ligasure open haemorrhoidectomy
Abstract: We report an unfortunate case of rectal perforation and subsequent peritonitis in a 74-year-old lady who underwent haemorrhoidal artery ligation in order to treat complex large external and internal haemorrhoids. Serious complications following haemorrhoid surgery are rare and this is the first documented case of delayed intra-abdominal rectal perforation following a haemorrhoid artery ligation operation and converted Ligasure open haemorrhoidectomy.
