Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9965400A1] A device for enabling the treatment of haemorrhoids includes a barrel (11) having a longitudinal bore with an opening (32) at the free end of the barrel. A pump action handle (12) communicates with the opening (32) via the bore to establish a reduced air pressure in the opening (32) for drawing a haemorrhoid into the opening. A plurality of rubber bands (33 to 37) are stretched circumferentially around the barrel near its free end on a tubular fabric (42). A trigger mechanism (13) is arranged to draw the free forward end of the fabric progressively around the end of the barrel and into the opening (32) to release the rubber bands consecutively off the free end of the barrel onto the haemorrhoid.
