This technology appraisal examined the currently available devices for stapled haemorrhoidopexy. The evidence considered refers to the HCS33 circular stapler (models PPH01 and PPH03, Ethicon Endo-Surgery). At the time of the technology appraisal, there was no evidence to make recommendations for the Autosuture stapler with the STRAM kit adaptor.

1.1 Stapled haemorrhoidopexy, using a circular stapler specifically developed for haemorrhoidopexy, is recommended as an option for people in whom surgical intervention is considered appropriate for the treatment of prolapsed internal haemorrhoids.
