Rectoanal inhibitory reflex (RAIR) is a physiological modulated reflex involved in anorectal continence and defined by a relaxation of internal anal sphincter following rectal distension. Its existence depends on intramural autonomic ganglions and its modulation on the integrity of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The aim of this study was to analyse RAIR modulation in terms of amplitude and duration in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Twenty-one patients with MS and 40 control patients had… CONTINUE READING
