Defects of the external anal sphincter have traditionally been diagnosed by palpation, anal manometry and electromyography (EMG), but anal endosonography enables clear imaging of both the internal and external sphincter muscles. A study was performed to validate the interpretation of ultrasonographic images of external sphincter defects using histology as a 'gold standard'. In addition the accuracy of clinical examination, manometry, EMG mapping and anal endosonography in the diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
