6.1 The Committee noted that electrotherapy for the treatment of haemorrhoids is intended to be used as an outpatient procedure without anaesthesia, and that patients treated by the low power settings often need repeat procedures.

6.2 The Committee noted that there was little evidence about the use of this procedure for grade IV haemorrhoids.
