AIM: to evaluate the results of submucosal laser destruction of hemorrhoids using a W-laser.PATIENTS AND METHODS: one-hundred twenty-four patients with chronic hemorrhoids underwent submucosal W-laser destruction of hemorrhoidal piles in September 2017 – January 2019.RESULTS: the time of the procedure was 18-22 minutes.

The excellent result of treatment was found in 70.2%, good – in 22.6%, bad – in 7.2%.CONCLUSION: submucosal W-laser destruction of hemorrhoidal piles showed a less pain intensity after surgery and a decrease in the complication rate, fast recovery and better quality of life.
