High-Resolution Anoscopy Perceived Discomfort Study

2019-09-13 02:15:39 | BioPortfolio


Study should determine if performing the less uncomfortable part of the exam (the perianal exam) results in less recalled discomfort if performed last vs. if performed first.


Performance of the perianal examination at the end of the high resolution anoscopy (HRA) procedure will lead to patients reporting less discomfort directly following the procedure. The study team hypothesizes at least a 10% decrease in subsequently rated pain scores in the group where the perianal exam is performed last compared to the group where it is performed first.
