Piles or Bawaseer ( Haemorrhoids ) is the most prevalent anorectal disorder and the most common cause of bleeding with stool. Patients with first degree (10) or second degree (20) Haemorrhoids may experience acute attacks of discomfort, pain and/or bleeding. The conventional approaches and some surgical procedures used in modern practice in grade 1 and grade 2 Haemorrhoids are associated with potential complications.
To assess the efficacy of Hamdoroid capsule in combination with Hamdoroid ointment on symptomatic first and second degree internal Haemorrhoids, a double blind placebo controlled clinical trial was carried out. Hamdoroid combination therapy provided marked improvement in mild to severe grades of symptoms in these patients. The improvement produced by the drug was significantly superior to that of placebo. The drugs were well accepted by the participants in this study and no noticeable side effects were detected.
