Example text

Deferral can cause proximal movement of the stool back into the sigmoid colon or just allows time for the rectal smooth muscle to undergo receptive relaxation reducing rectal pressure. 22 Once the decision has been made to evacuate the rectum, the process of reversing the normally positive anorectal pressure gradient has to take place. Behavioural mechanisms such as sitting allow the anorectal angle to widen facilitating the passage of solid stool. Contraction of the abdominal wall muscles raises the intra-abdominal pressure which is transmitted to the rectum which deforms the anterior wall making it concave.

Physiology of Rectal Sensation In contrast to the anal canal, Duthie and Gairns when studying the rectum found no free nerve endings and few or no organised nerve endings resulting in a poor sensitivity to pain, touch and temperature. Goligher et al. described the ability to detect balloon distension in the colon and rectum [86]. Distension in the colon results in a sensation of discomfort in the lower abdomen in contrast to distension of the rectum which results in a sensation of flatus or the desire to defaecate.

2 Anorectal Physiology Radial asymmetry index (RAI) is a quantitative measure of the radial symmetry and can be calculated at any level in the anal canal but most commonly refers to the level at which the highest resting pressure is generated. It is expressed as a percentage with 0 % indicating no asymmetry, with all channels recording the same value. The principle is that an asymmetrical sphincter is more likely to have a sphincter defect although this is highly inaccurate compared to the gold standard of endoanal ultrasound.
