Procedure Note

Rubber Band Ligation with the CRH O’Regan System®

We have been asked by a number of our partners for a sample procedure note for those of you wishing to utilize a more formal template for your reporting of these procedures. Feel free to modify and “cut and paste” the verbiage below into your EMR. Thanks, and please let us know if there is anything that we can do in order to help support you and your practice moving forward!


The patient presents with symptomatic grade (1, 2, 3, 4) hemorrhoids, unresponsive to maximal medical therapy, requesting rubber band ligation of his/her hemorrhoidal disease.  All risks, benefits and alternative forms of therapy were described and informed consent was obtained.

In the Left Lateral Decubitus position (if anoscopy is performed) anoscopic examination revealed grade (1, 2, 3, 4) hemorrhoids in the (RA, RP, LL, all) position(s). 

The decision was made to band the (RA, RP, LL) internal hemorrhoid, and the CRH O’Regan System was used to perform band ligation without complication.  Digital anorectal examination was then performed to assure proper positioning of the band, and to adjust the banded tissue as required.  The patient was discharged home without pain or other issues.  Dietary and behavioral recommendations were given and (if necessary – prescriptions were given), along with follow-up instructions.  The patient will return {[in (1, 2, 3, 4)] weeks/months or as needed} for follow-up and possible additional banding as required.

No complications were encountered and the patient tolerated the procedure well.
