Dear Editor,

Thank you very much for the valuable comments from Dr. Sepehrimanesh and Dr. Mehrabi (1). In response to these comments, it should be said that due to the wide communality of the mentioned diseases (hemorrhoid, fissure and constipation), their detection is a very common experience of clinicians. But in any case, the relevant references should be referred to. This clinical trial also analyzed the data according to an intention-to-treat analysis. The missing data were below 10% (2).
