Background: Hemorrhoidectomy is the treatment of choice for symptomatic hemorrhoids, reserved for patients with grade III or IV hemorrhoids or no response to conservative treatment. There are several surgical techniques, whose degree of resolution of symptoms and patient satisfaction has varied results. Objectives: To evaluate in the short term the symptomatology and degree of satisfaction of patients undergoing conventional hemorrhoidectomy in Complejo Asistencial Dr. Sótero del Río. Material and Methods: A retrospective telephone survey was applied to patients undergoing conventional hemorrhoidectomy from June 2015 to January 2016. The survey includes questions about symptoms in the pre-operative, at the month and at 6 or more months post-operated. Bleeding, pruritus, pain, prolapsed sensation and incontinence were evaluated. The statistical analysis considered the results according to the 5 symptoms evaluated in the survey and then dichotomized according to clinical relevance. A significant p value < 0.01 was considered. Results: 43 patients answered the survey, with a median age of 55 years (17-80). The median evaluation was 8 months (6-12). Considering the symptoms: bleeding, pruritus, pain and prolapse, 35 patients (79%) had 3 or more preoperative symptoms considered significant. Persistent follow-up ranges from 9 to 28%. In the statistical analysis with dichotomized symptoms, there is a statistically significant decrease at one month and at 6 or more months post-surgery. Conclusion: Conventional hemorrhoidectomy is well evaluated by patients in relation to a significant resolution of hemorrhoidal disease symptoms Fulle C., Angelo; Moreno L., Pablo; Quezada D., Felipe; Carvajal G., Gonzalo; Briones N., Pamela; Kusanovich B., Rodrigo; Castillo R., Richard.
