Abstract
 

INTRODUCTION:

Post-hemorrhoidectomy pain is significantly associated with a hypertonicity of the internal anal sphincter. We evaluated the effects of topical diltiazem, a calcium channel blocker, in reducing pain after hemorrhoidectomy. Purpose of our study was to determine difference in extent of pain control by application of topical calcium channel blocker (diltiazem 2%) versus placebo ointment.

METHODS:

This was a prospective randomized double-blind clinical study conducted at Sawai Man Singh Hospital, Jaipur, from May 2016 to May 2017. Sixty patients, who had undergone hemorrhoid, were randomly assigned to receive 2% diltiazem ointment (n = 30) or a placebo ointment (n = 30) postoperatively. Ointments were applied to the perianal region three times daily for 7 days. Pain scores were recorded using visual analog scale at 6, 24, and 48 h and seventh day postoperatively and number of analgesic doses consumed by patients in the first 3 days.

RESULTS:

Patients using the diltiazem ointment had significantly less pain and greater benefit than those in the placebo group throughout the first postoperative week (p < 0.001) except for reading at 6 h. Also, there was significantly less number of analgesic doses consumed in the diltiazem group compared to the placebo group.

CONCLUSION:

Perianal application of 2% diltiazem ointment after hemorrhoidectomy significantly reduces postoperative pain and is perceived as beneficial.

 

 
Question posée
 
Les applications locales de diltiazem permettent-elles de réduire la douleur après hémorroïdectomie tripédiculaire ?
 
Question posée
 
Les patients traités par diltiazem avaient moins mal et prenaient moins d’antalgiques et ce de façon significative par rapport au groupe placebo.
 
Commentaires

Un petit essai contrôlé randomisé mais un point positif en un temps où la place grandissante de la chirurgie ambulatoire va rendre impérative le bon contrôle de la douleur postopératoire.
