Those relate to the introduction of a short (2” inches long) and relatively small device (3/4” diameter) into the rectum and include anal fissures and severe haemorrhoids.

However, this can be a problem with a compromised bowel wall, as in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (IBD), bowel cancer and medications/bowel pathology leading to reduced bowel resistance. Hernia and abdominal surgery should be healed before treatment. Caution must be applied with liver/kidney disease, pregnancy and hypertension.
