With advances in diagnostic technology, it is now accepted that in the field of functional bowel disorders, symptom-based assessment is unsatisfactory as the sole means of directing therapy. A robust taxonomy based on underlying pathophysiology has been suggested, highlighting a crucial role for physiologic testing in clinical practice. A wide number of complementary investigations currently exist for the assessment of anorectal structure and function, some of which have a clinical impact in… CONTINUE READING
