The main objective of this study is to determine the efficacy and safety of topical treatment of hemorrhoids. The following comparisons will be made:
- any topical treatment compared with instrumental/surgical treatment
- any topical treatment compared with dietary modification alone, placebo or no treatment
- any topical treatment compared with oral flavonoids
- comparisons between different topical anti hemorrhoidal treatments
Subgroup comparisons will be made according to the severity of disease (grade of hemorrhoidal disease) and presentation (acute, chronic), as well as type of topical treatment if possible.
This is a protocol.
