Sphincterometry

Sphincterometry is an examination of the strength of the rectal sphincter's contractile apparatus. Behind this purely scientific, dry definition lie the pain, suffering, and embarrassment of people with gas and fecal incontinence, severe constipation, and especially those who have overcome rectal cancer but have lost control over the anal sphincter. It is precisely to help these patients that we have organized a group for functional diagnostics and treatment of pelvic disorders under the guidance of Doctor of Medical Sciences, Professor O.Y. Fomenko.

Conclusion

Preparation for sphincterometry must be carried out in the morning on the day of the study. This diagnostic method does not require fasting, long-term use of laxatives and complete cleansing of the intestines. We recommend using ready-made microenemas or an enema with 500 ml of water at room temperature.

But those who suffer from constipation will have to carry out cleansing procedures twice: in the evening before the examination and in the morning on the day of the procedure.

Before the procedure, you will have a consultation with a neurophysiologist professor on your existing problems for the most accurate diagnosis and the formation of precise recommendations at no additional charge. Your individual indications for sphincterometry will definitely be taken into account, such as:


  • Congenital pathology of the anus or surgically created anal sphincter
  • Functional sphincter insufficiency caused by various diseases without damaging the integrity of the anal ring
  • Neurogenic problems, impaired sensitivity and control over bowel movements
  • Injuries of the obturator apparatus of the rectum: violation of the integrity of the sphincter during surgical interventions, household injuries and accidental ruptures of the rectum, perineal ruptures during complicated childbirth

The procedure is painless. The patient lies on his left side, and a special thin (1 cm) sensor is inserted into the rectum 4-5 cm. The doctor may ask the patient to clench or relax, or to cough. The duration of the procedure is 15-20 minutes. During the procedure the following happens:


  • Measuring basal pressure is the tone of the internal anal sphincter
  • Maximum compression pressure - characterizes the tone of the external anal sphincter
  • Endurance of the external anal sphincter during compression
  • Ejection pressure or cough test

You will receive results immediately: the latter will contain detailed digital and graphical data on sphincter strength, anal pressure and obturator function. Also, in conclusion, you will be given a transcript and recommendations from the professor. Thus, your next steps to solve existing problems will be clear to you.

A Bit of Anatomy

skillets

The rectal closure apparatus consists of internal and external sphincters—an intricate device that the healthy human body controls with a double check. The first sphincter contracts involuntarily, while the function of the second one is controlled by our consciousness. The coordinated work of these sphincters determines the retention of gases and intestinal contents, as well as normal defecation when the individual regulates visits to the bathroom, rather than the toilet dictating the rhythm of life.
