AX of Anorectal Disorders: What's New in the 21st Century

Lecture: AX of anorectal disorders: What's new in the 21st Century

Anorectal disorders, such as faecal incontinence and obstructed defaecation, each affect approximately 10% of the ambulant adult population in the community, making them more prevalent than cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis combined. Further, they co-exist in at least 20% of sufferers of urogenital dysfunction.  However, despite their common concurrence and shared aetiology in pelvic floor dysfunction, there seems to be more uncertainty and less confidence in the management of anorectal than urogenital disorders

This lecture will provide a simple, structured approach to the evaluation of the patient with anorectal symptoms to help demystify and build confidence and effectiveness in the clinical assessment of sufferers. It will focus on the latest available techniques to objectively investigate anorectal conditions that have revolutionised the assessment and treatment of patients in the 21st century. The results of these cutting-edge investigations in common, real-life clinical cases will be presented to demonstrate how they offer an additional edge to planning and providing non-surgical therapy and, perhaps more importantly, how they can enhance patient understanding and thus adherence and compliance with the interventions you provide.
