Comparing the accuracy and advantages of transperineal ultrasonography and MRI for anal sphincter dysfunction

Dr. P Naga Praveen and Dr. Sonali Vijay Kimmatkar
Introduction: The pelvic floor muscles assist in both defecation and continence when acting along with the anal sphincter. Hence, the clinical symptoms of anal sphincter dysfunction include faecal incontinence or obstructed defecation. Faecal incontinence refers to the involuntary release of gas, liquid, or solid feces, which is not only a socially uncomfortable issue but also poses a risk to one's health.
Materials and Methods: Between January 2015 to November 2015, at the Department of Radiology, Department of Radiodiagnosis, Madha Medical College, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. We treat everyone who has faecal incontinence due to an injury to the anal sphincter. Experiment with a Cross-Sectional Design and Prospective Analysis.
Results: For most people, having a vaginal delivery is the primary cause of faecal incontinence. Postpartum faecal incontinence has a complex aetiology, but the most common cause is damage to the anal sphincters. Postpartum may also result from damage to the anal sphincter complex, the puborectalis muscle, or the pudendal nerve.
Conclusion: These patients choose this non-invasive, inexpensive, and readily available technique. MRI is useful for secondary fistula and supra and extra elevator evaluation. MRI can detect extensions, extent, length, secondary tracks, and perianal abscess. TPUS detects perineal descent and rectocele better than MRI. TPUS and MRI detect sphincter abnormalities equally well.
