We hypothesized that the anovaginal distance (AVD), defined as the distance between the anal mucosa and the vaginal wall at the middle level of the anal canal, is higher in obese women com...
Injury to the muscles of the back passage (anal canal) is a relatively common problem. This injury can result in problems with bowel control later in life and usually occurs during vaginal...
In countries where there is high prevalence of doing episiotomy in primiparous women, the incidence of sustained obstetric anal sphincter injuries is increasing. When the tear extend beyo...
To evaluate levator ani muscle morphology following normal vaginal delivery and cesarean section (elective and emergent), using three-dimensional (3D) transperineal ultrasound, and to stud...
Prospective comparative parallel ultrasound diagnostic transrectal study in the diagnosis of cryptogenic fistulas of the rectum
The optimal imaging modality of obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIs) needs to take into consideration convenience, availability and ability to assess the sphincter morphology. Endoanal ultrasound...
Obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASISs) complicate approximately 1 in 10 deliveries.
The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate the effect of Episcissors-60, which were designed to improve the accuracy of episiotomies, on the rate of Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injuries.
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 o...
The use of point-of-care sonography in clinical settings such as emergency medicine and intensive care units has increased, but adoption in neonatology has been slow. Unlike the focused assessment wit...
Surgical incision of the INTERNAL ANAL SPHINCTER typically in the treatment of FISSURE IN ANO; chronic ANAL FISSURE and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
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.
A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
