Computed tomography of ano-rectal anomalies : Correlation between radiologic findings and clinical evaluation of faecal incontinence

Arnbjörnsson, E. LU ; Laurin, S. and Mikaelsson, C. (1989) In Acta Radiologica 30(1). p.25-28
Abstract

Computed tomography (CT) was performed in 9 patients with faecal incontinence more than 8 years after rectoplasty for high imperforate anus. The radiologic findings were correlated with the clinical evaluation of faecal incontinence. No statistically significant correlation was found between function and anatomic findings as demonstrated by CT. Thus, although CT demonstrates the post-operative anatomy in a detailed way, the information does not seem to be directly applicable when selecting the type of reoperation for faecal incontinence.
