High-resolution anorectal manometry (HRAM) is a diagnostic tool to evaluate anorectal motility patterns. HRAM measures the pressure of the muscle contractions of the anus, providing contractile and relaxation patterns, the sensitivity of the rectum, and the reflexes that are required for normal defecation. In this webinar, we will discuss how the procedure is performed, which patient populations would benefit from this procedure and what symptoms it is indicated for, and lastly how to incorporate the London protocol guidelines and what diagnostic improvements it provides.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
Understand the utility of anorectal high-resolution manometry in practice.
Identify the adjustments of the London protocol and the reasons they were included.
Distinguish the correct routine to perform anorectal manometry with London protocol additions.
