Abstract

The role of a mixture of phlebotonics in the treatment of acute hemorrhoid crisis is investigated to test their efficacy. One hundred and thirty-four consecutive patients with an acute hemorrhoidal crisis recruited in five colorectal units entered the study. Sixty-six of them were randomized to receive a mixture of diosmin, troxerutin and hesperidin (group A), and 68 a placebo (group B). The main symptoms, the use of oral painkillers and the Bristol scale score were recorded at each scheduled visit and compared using both Student's t test for independent samples and the ANOVA models for repeated measures. The presence of edema, prolapse and thrombosis were also recorded and compared using the Chi-square test. Furthermore, the trend of proportions during the time of the evaluations was assessed by the Chi-square test for linear trend. Pain, bleeding and the proportion of patients who reported persistence of edema and thrombosis decreased significantly after 12 days of treatment in group A. After 6 days, the number of paracetamol tablets taken by patients in group A was significantly lower than the amount of flavonoid mixture. The use of a mixture of diosmin, troxerutin and hesperidin is a safe and effective mean of managing symptoms of acute hemorrhoidal disease. Furthermore, in patients receiving treatment, there was faster control and lower persistence of edema and thrombosis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 28 September 2017.
All research outputs
#7,638,486
of 12,223,436 outputs
Outputs from Techniques in Coloproctology
#433
of 623 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#122,420
of 221,334 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Techniques in Coloproctology
#14
of 38 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,223,436 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 623 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.6. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 221,334 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 38 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
