360˚Endorectal Ultrasound image

360˚Endorectal Ultrasound  Endorectal ultrasound is yet another diagnostic tool able to be used in the assessment and management of patients with fecal incontinence.  It can detect external and internal anal sphincter defects in these patients confirming what may be seen following an Anorectal Manometry diagnostic study.   It can assess and evaluate the structure of the sphincter muscle and surrounding tissue. There is little to no preparation for an Endorectal Ultrasound to be performed.  The patient is placed in the left lateral decubitus position.  A condom filled with ultrasound conductive gel is placed over the ultrasound transducer and is lubricated with gel and then gently inserted into the anal canal.  The 360˚ Endorectal Ultrasound is relatively well-tolerated by most patients. Endorectal  ultrasound ...

Diagnostic Hysteroscopy image

The positive predictive value (PPV) of diagnostic hysteroscopy vs saline infusion sonography (SIS) for the detection of myomas and polyps in patients with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) has long been debated. Most published studies have concluded that diagnostic hysteroscopy and SIS are relatively equivalent diagnostic tools for the detection of intrautine myomas and polyps. Traditional AUB studies have been based on histologic diagnosis established through either dilatation and curettage (D&C) or blind endometrial biopsy but these diagnostic procedures do not detect all endometrial abnormalities. Only hysteroscopy allows for direct visualization of the uterine cavity and abnormalities can be biopsied immediately. The WiCAM™ Wireless Digital Endoscope Camera & LED Light Source is a game changer for the Infertility/Reproductive Health market place. The (SIS) has long been ...

Endorectal Ultrasound image

The Prometheus Group has an inexpensive Endorectal Ultrasound for physicians.  Imaging of the anal sphincter is helpful in all patients with fecal incontinence to assess the structure and integrity of the sphincters.   Ultrasound imaging of the anal sphincters provides complementary structural information to the functional information that can be obtained with Anorectal Manometry/Paradoxical sEMG and should be performed in combination with this test.  The in-office procedure is well tolerated and provides more comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plans.  The reports are PDF and Microsoft Word™ format for easy importing in Electronic Medical Records.

Pelvic Muscle Rehabilitation – Treatment of Male Patients image

Often men are overlooked in patient treatment for Pelvic Muscle Rehabilitation. Besides pre and post prostatectomy treatment with PFT, many of our urology practices see male patients with scrotal pain and use PFT with great results. Patients are seen twice a week for pain. First determine if there is a high baseline resting tone (which is usually the case). Treating 100 Hz and 12.5 Hz intermittent stim or one continuous and one intermittent 15minutes of each twice a week.  Patients report doing  great with this therapy and always consider a home stim unit like the Pathway® STM-10 Vaginal and Rectal Intracavity Stimulator after the attended sessions.
