  • Postoperative pain related to upper anal canal pressure increasing (yes or no) [ Time Frame: from the intervention to 1 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate if the pain post stapled haemorrhoidopexy is related to an increased anal resting pressure or not. The presence of anorectal spasm was assessed by clinical examination and anorectal manometry
  • Postoperative pain remission [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To assess postoperative pain remission
  • Postoperative anal resting pressure at pain remission [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    We evaluate with anorectal manometry the anal resting pressure at the time of pain remission

  • Duration of therapy [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate how many days of therapy are needed to obtain pain remission
  • Use of additional analgesic [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days to intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the use of additional drugs respect to standard therapy
  • Postoperative pain intensity [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate the intensity of postoperative pain assessed by VAS (visual analogue scale)
  • Patients satisfaction [ Time Frame: 45 days after intervention ]
    To evaluate the satisfaction of the patients, assessed by a questionnaire (scale from 1 to 5)
  • Duration of therapy [ Time Frame: from 1 to 90 days after intervention ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To evaluate how many days of therapy are needed to obtain pain remission
