A prospective randomized study was performed. Compliance with the treatment and healing rate of chronic anal fissure in patients receiving glyceryl trinitrate ointment (GTO) and subjects u...
Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation is introduced as regular treatment option for fecal urge continence at the Cantonal Hospital St. Gallen. During this introduction phase efficiency und...
This randomized trial aims to compare two topical treatments in the treatment of chronic anal fissure: minoxidil gel and glycreyl trintrate cream. The endpoint of the study is the duration...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether tibial nerve stimulation is an effective treatment for faecal incontinence.
To evaluate the effect on healing rates of two different prognostic factors in patients treated with Dysport® for anal fissure: duration of fissure and dose of study drug
Lateral internal anal sphincterotomy (LIS) is considered the treatment of choice for chronic anal fissure. This study aimed to compare the outcome of standard LIS and posterolateral internal sphincter...
Obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASI) are a major risk factor for fecal incontinence (FI). Neuromodulation is often used as second-line therapy for FI, but evidence for its efficacy is conflicting....
Acute anal fissure is a very common disorder of the anorectal region. Its most widely used treatment method is the medications given in addition to conservative therapies. The objective of the present...
Postoperative ileus involves an inflammatory pathway characterized by an increase of inflammation mediators in the colon wall; this could probably be prevented by sacral nerve neuromodulation. The pos...
Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is a surgical treatment of urinary and fecal incontinence. Despite its clinical efficacy, the mechanisms of action of SNS are still poorly known. This may be related to ...
Surgical incision of the INTERNAL ANAL SPHINCTER typically in the treatment of FISSURE IN ANO; chronic ANAL FISSURE and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)
A nerve which originates in the sacral spinal cord (S2 to S4) and innervates the PERINEUM, the external GENITALIA, the external ANAL SPHINCTER and the external urethral sphincter. It has three major branches: the perineal nerve, inferior anal nerves, and the dorsal nerve of penis or clitoris.
Disease or damage involving the SCIATIC NERVE, which divides into the PERONEAL NERVE and TIBIAL NERVE (see also PERONEAL NEUROPATHIES and TIBIAL NEUROPATHY). Clinical manifestations may include SCIATICA or pain localized to the hip, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of posterior thigh muscles and muscles innervated by the peroneal and tibial nerves, and sensory loss involving the lateral and posterior thigh, posterior and lateral leg, and sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve may be affected by trauma; ISCHEMIA; COLLAGEN DISEASES; and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1363)
