Transanal ultrasound: clinical indications

Transanal ultrasound is a fundamental exam for the anatomical and functional evaluation of the sphincter complex and for the diagnosis of numerous anorectal diseases. Endoanal ultrasound has in fact numerous clinical recommendations and is particularly useful for the diagnosis and the correct evaluation of:

  • dysfunctional disorders such as faecal incontinence, obstructed defecation syndrome and abdominal pelvic dyssynergia
  • inflammatory diseases, such as fistulas and anal abscesses
  • neoplasms of the anal canal

Transanal ultrasound with traditional ultrasonic endoanal probe

Ultrasound endoanal probes normally used to perform transanal ultrasonography have limitations which can make it difficult to carry out this important diagnostic test.

The imaging ultrasound system is generally a static and cumbersome instrument which needs a dedicated environment. The size, delicacy and poor handling of this equipment make it difficult and inconvenient to move from a day hospital setting to the surgery room.

These features mean that EAUS traditional probes are not very versatile, difficult to handle and are associated with frequent inconveniences in the clinical practice of specialists and health professionals.
