The Pilex ligation pistol

When done properly, rubber-band ligation is among the simplest and most reliable methods of treating early-stage internal haemorrhoids—but finding the right ligation system can be surprisingly tricky. Forceps? Can cause additional haemorrhaging and pain. Manual band loading? Time-consuming and risks inaccurate placement. Disposable systems? Potentially costly for clinic and environment.

The Pilex ligator strikes the perfect balance between simplicity and sustainability: convenient twist-on cartridges come pre-loaded with four bands, ensuring accurate positioning every time, while the ergonomic ligator itself can be resterilised or replaced between procedures.
