A Proven Hemorrhoid Solution
The CRH O’Regan System is the first entirely disposable, single-use device for quick, comfortable hemorrhoid treatment.
The CRH O’Regan System employs a next-generation device that dramatically improves upon the metal instruments used in traditional hemorrhoid banding procedures.
With this FDA-approved technology – invented in 1997 by laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Patrick J. O’Regan – the CRH O’Regan System offers both you and your patients a number of benefits:
- Instead of metal parts that can cause pain or puncture the skin, CRH uses a gentle, painless suction device
- Single-use, disposable technology protects against cross-patient infection with blood borne pathogens such as HIV and hepatitis B and C
- Can be used on all grades of hemorrhoids
- More than 99% effective and can treat approximately 95% of all hemorrhoid patients
The CRH O’Regan System offers clear advantages over IRC because it treats all grades of hemorrhoids, offers a lower recurrence rate, doesn’t require capital equipment and offers a leading physician training and support program.
Unlike endoscopic banding, the CRH O’Regan System requires no patient prep or sedation – making it quick and easy for your practice to schedule and manage. In addition, complication rates are much lower and the endoscopes do not need to be cleaned, keeping your costs down.
Fewer complications and lower recurrence
A large 2005 prospective study of the CRH O’Regan System reported the lowest complication rate ever published at 16 out of 5,424 procedures, or 0.9%. Those 16 reported complications included:
- 8 patients with post-band bleed (0.4%)
- 3 patients with post-band pain (0.2%)
- 5 patients with post-band thrombosis (0.3%)
No other complications were observed in this study, which represents a tenfold reduction in complications compared to conventional rubber band ligation. In addition to this significant advance, the results showed the CRH O’Regan System to have a recurrence rate of 4.8% at 2 years and 13% at 42 months, which is lower than other, non-surgical options such as IRC, and is comparable to that of surgery. A follow-up study in 2010 of 20,206 rubber band ligations in 6,690 patients confirmed the rate of effectiveness found in the 2005 study. It should be noted that patient compliance with dietary changes and recommended bowel habits may have marked influence on recurrence rates. Long-term studies are also needed to confirm whether this distinction exists at late follow-up.
