Each group consisted of 46 patients. Group A received topical diltiazem in the anal region 3 times a day and group B received a tablet tramadol. Results: In group A, the mean score on the visual analogue scale was 5.6 at 24 h, 1.5 at 48 h, and 0.5 at 72 h. In group B, it was 6 at 24 h, 3.6 at 48 h, and 2 at 72 hConclusion: In this study average pain scores after using 2% Topical Diltiazem ointment at 48 hours was 1.5 as compared control group 3.6 and at 72 hours was 0.5 as compared control group 2.0 which is nearly comparable to above mentioned studies. hence, there was significant reduction of haemorrhoidectomy pain at 48 hours and 72 hours in patients who applied 2% Topical Diltiazem ointment.
