Ultrasound-Guided Needle Electromyography of the External Anal Sphincter.

Summary of "Ultrasound-Guided Needle Electromyography of the External Anal Sphincter."

Anal sphincter needle electromyography (EMG) is a useful tool to evaluate various neurologic lesions. However, landmark-based needle placement has risks of missing the intended target including risk of bowel penetration. Ultrasound guidance has been widely used to enhance needle placement for various interventional procedures, but it has not been previously reported for use in anal sphincter EMG.
