Evaluating patients with anorectal incontinence. Enric Vidal Gispert Gastroenterology.

The ano-rectal manometry is an established diagnostic method for the study of both the AI and the CC. Although the incontinence concept is very intuitive, there is no unanimously accepted definition of this, with considerable differences according to the different groups.

However, there is an overlap between values obtained in the AI group and the other groups, situation already referred in other studies Figure 1 shows a normal endoanal ultrasound photo. The sample size is the main limitation of the study. Practical issues in the management of third and fourth degree tears to minimise the incidence of faecal incontinence.

Anorectal manometry

In case of finding statistical significance the test of Mann-Whitney for the comparison by pairs was used and, in the case of discrete variables the chi-square test. Although there are established causes that can be directly responsible for triggering the appearance of AI, in most cases there are multifactor origin, being able to find some patients with ano-rectal anatomical anprectal functional studies within normality.


We selected a healthy women group, without sphincters injuries, into a few dispersed age range. Manometric tests of anorectal function in healthy adults. Type of AI and manometry parameters.

These discrepancies can be in relation, among other factors, with methodological aspects Faecal incontinence in adults.


The definition of AI was considered as previously expressed 2 and functional CC was defined according to the definition accepted in the Rome III criteria 4. Relationship of symptoms in faecal incontinence to specific sphincter abnormalities. However, the term faecal incontinence is used frequently by the clinicians in the case of the incontinence to gas.

The average age of the group was of On the other hand, the distribution by sexes of the control group homogenous, both AI and CC are more frequent in women 14although in our study females only had an increased probability of having CC. Such exploration can be done with conventional manometry or high – resolution manometry, which provides tomographic images in color of this area. The following data were obtained: The etiology of the diverticulum of the rectum still has controversial aspects regarding its origin is congenital or acquired.

With it you can measure: Anorectal manometry is a technique used to measure contractility in the anus and rectum. He is a member of various medical societies, highlighting the European Society of Neurogastroenterology.


We know that 14 subjects is a small sample, but not insufficient. Rev Esp Enferm Dig ; Overlapping of the values in the 3 kanometria was observed Fig.

Anorectal manometry, what measures and what is

Evaluation of the ano-rectal function Ano-rectal manometry: The aim of the present study is to evaluate if differences in the demographic and manometric parameters obtained from the anal canal pressures and the sensorial threshold exist in patients with AI, CC and healthy subjects that may increase the risk of AI.

Rev Esp Enferm Dig ;95 Overall assessment of their patients See opinions 7. Inclusion criteria We included adult healthy women between 18 and 65 years old with normal continence in their study.

Gastroenterology Gastroenterology ; With respect to the manometric findings of the patients with AI: The fact that there were no endoscopic injuries in any of the patients makes it less probable that the sensorial abnormalities found must be related to alterations of the rectal wall, and probably, they were related to the existence of some dysfunction in the motor sensory innervations’.
