Internal hemorrhoids and loose rectal mucosa may block the exposure during the purse string suturing in stapled hemorrhooidopexy, and this may cause some complications. To retract the prolapsing rectal mucosa we modified the purse string anoscope of the PPH01 kit (Ethicon-Endosurgery, Cincinnati, O...H, USA) and produced a special anoscope. The open part of the purse string suture anoscope is covered by transparent acrylic (Orthoacryl�, Dentaurum, Pforzheim, Germany). The covering material had complete cylindrical outer and inner surfaces and was thin enough to let the anoscope easily rotate in the anal dilator and to let the 26 mm curved, round bodied needle of the 2/0 polypropilene suture move in the anoscope. A window, 3 cm long and 3-4 mm wide, was opened at the angled part of the anoscope 2 cm to the tip of the anoscope. This special anoscope was used for the purse string suture during stapled hemorrhoidopexy procedure in five patients. No postoperative complications, early or late, were encountered, and we propose that stapled hemorrhoidopexy procedure can be applied more easily by using this special anoscope.
