For larger varicose external hemorrhoids or external hemorrhoids epicanthic female front side, single use radial incision, unresectable external hemorrhoids, if left to do too much skin, then postoperative inflammation, pain, skin hyperplasia legacy epicanthus do external hemorrhoids; If the expansion of the angle between the removal of all external hemorrhoids, the anal skin damage caused by excessive anal stenosis.

To make up for these shortcomings, surgery may be added to a small incision on one side or both sides of the incision, stripped edge venous plexus, suture the skin to do. If the skin do involution poor, prone to pain, swelling, skin do Alice straight, and slow healing.
