The cases of age more than 18 years irrespective of their gender having haemorrhoids with grade III & IV lasting for at least 1-month duration were included. Then all these cases were divided into two groups and the cases in Group A were treated with closed and those in group B with open technique. These cases were then followed for different surgical outcomes. Results; In this study, 50 cases were selected in each group. The mean ages in group A and B were 48.71±12.89 years 45.56±11.45 vs 48.34±11.79 (p= 0.87) and mean duration of haemorrhoids was 5.57±1.45 vs 4.78±1.03 months. Post surgical outcome comparison in both group revealed wound infection in 2 (4%) vs 18 (36%), post operative bleeding in 4 (8%) vs 11 (22%) and pain in 18 (36%) vs 7 (14%) with p values of 0.0001, 0.01 and 0.01 respectively.
