Background: Phlebotonics are made of plant extracts and synthetic compounds. Although their mechanism of action is not completely clear, they are associated with an increase in venous tone and decreased capillary permeability. The aim of this paper was to assess the efficacy of Diosmin 500mg, Esperidine 90mg, Ruscogenin 100mg in improving symptoms of patients with hemorrhoidal disease. Materials and Methods: This was an observational trial performed at the Department of Universitary General Surgery of L'Aquila from March 2021 to September 2021. Symptoms have been evaluated using scoring system proposed by Giordano et al. Patients have been clinically evaluated by the same surgeon at the time of diagnosis and at the 30th day of treatment. Results: Seventy-one patients were included in the study. In Group A (study group) we reported a decrease in symptomatologic score of 50% with a 30-days follow-up, while we reported a decrease of 27% in Group B (control group). Among patients in Group A, 67% of those with grade IV hemorrhoidal disease have been re-stadiated to grade III after 30 days of treatment. Conclusion: Flavonoids mixture could be a safe and effective mean for conservative management of hemorrhoidal disease. The doses seemed to be satisfactory and the proposed duration of treatment can be considered adequate.
