Various treatment modalities available for Haemorrhoids include operative as well as conservative method. A simple and safe para-surgical method I.R.C. (Infrared Coagulation) is selected for present trial. I.R.C. was performed through a special designed slit proctoscope. Patients excluded were with coagulopathy disorders, fissure in ano and anal ulcers. Total 10 patients with ages ranging from 20-65 yrs., irrespective of sex, religion, socio-economic status etc. were selected for the trial.
