How The Kshara Works On Anorectal Conditions?

The caustic alkali or kshara causes a coagulation effect on anorectal diseases like the sprouted mass of pile or hemorrhoids and the tract of the fistula by following below mentioned step-wise action;

  1. Cauterization: The potential chemical cautery effect of the kshara removes the undesired sprouted mass and destroys the abnormal tissue by causing hemostasis in and around the affected region.
  2. Necrosis: The blood supply to the affected area or part is compromised resulting in necrosis or death of the unhealthy tissue followed by the fibrosis of the plexus.
  3. Adhesion: The binding of the subsequent mucosal & submucosal coating prevents the further dilation of the veins of the region & prevents relapse of regional mucosa.
  4. Cessation of bleeding: The sclerosing effect of the kshara helps to coagulate the oozing blood, thus no chance of bleeding during kshara application. 
  5. Septic effect: The chance of infection is minimal due to the sustained action of the antimicrobial property of kshara.

The approach of kshara or caustic alkali with a combination of other medicinal herbs for the treatment of anorectal conditions has proved to reduce the incidence of the complications to a negligible level & has become a boon to the patients.

What Are The Benefits Of Kshara Treatment?

  1. Complete Recovery: The impaired continence after the anorectal disease treatment is for a short period of time which subsequently leads to complete recovery, during the follow-up period only. 
  1. No Relapse:  The chances of recurrence of haemorrhoidal disease after the treatment are only 2-4% which is practically nil with low corrosiveness, less pain & takes less hospitalization time as compared to other surgical procedures.
