Does the exclusion of subcutaneous external anal sphincter matter on exo-anal imaging?

CONCLUSION: As inclusion of the subcutaneous slice of the EAS on the TLUS does not seem to improve the predictive value of AI, the current methodology for EAS trauma on tomographic ultrasound can remain unchanged.

Conclusions: Anorectal function is impaired in IBD patients with perianal disease. Fecal incontinence correlates with poorer quality of life. Anorectal manometry and ultrasonography are useful tools for evaluating IBD patients. PMID: 31625422 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThere is no significant difference in the prevalence of EAS tears between vaginally primiparous and multiparous women. This argues against additional traumatic effects of subsequent vaginal births.

AbstractPurposeTo assess the correlation between the type and degree of cystocele and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) by transperineal ultrasound.MethodsA retrospective study evaluated 207 women who were diagnosed with cystocele by transperineal ultrasound. One hundred and six women who were diagnosed with SUI by a full urodynamic study were enrolled in the SUI group, 101 women without SUI were enrolled in the prolapse group, and 100 normal women with neither SUI nor POP were enrolled as the control group. In the transperineal ultrasound study, the bladder neck, the lowest point of the bladder wall, bladder neck funnelin...

​Prepubertal boys who present to the emergency department with dysuria are uncommon. The adult with burning on urination is assumed to have a sexually transmitted disease, but of course that diagnosis should not be high on your list for boys.In fact, infectious urethritis in children is quite uncommon unless there is premature sexual activity or sexual abuse by an adult. Unfortunately, a variety of noninfectious urethral pathologies may mimic infectious urethritis in children. A urinary tract infection in a prepubertal boy is an infectious cause of dysuria. Those infections, however, rarely present with the isolated symp...

This study's aim was to investigate by transperineal ultrasound (US) if there was any significant difference in the mobility of the bladder neck in women with stress urinary incontinence (SUI) without a cystocele and in those with SUI and an associated cystocele. The study also investigated whether the number of vaginal births and/or the heaviest newborn's birth weight was correlated with the bladder neck mobility. Materials and Methods: A total of 71 women suffering from SUI were included in the study and divided into two groups based on the presence of a cystocele. Their bladder neck mobility was evaluated by transperine...
