Anorectal manometry also called rectal manometry, ARM, or AM - Anorectal manometry is a test that evaluates bowel function in patients suffering from fecal incontinence or chronic constipation. The technique uses a small balloon in the rectum to distend the rectum and looks at: the strength of the anal sphincter muscles, sensations of stool in the rectum, reflexes that govern the bowel, and movements of the rectal and anal muscles. See Figure 1 showing a balloon. Anorectal manometry is a very important diagnostic tool used in the full and proper assessment of fecal incontinence and chronic constipation. The anal and the rectal area contains specialized muscles that regulate the proper passage of bowel movements.
Electrophysiologic Evaluation of Sacral Function
Anal sphincter EMG in the diagnosis of parkinsonian syndromes
Pelvic floor muscle EMG is most commonly recorded as part of urodynamic studies to obtain information about the kinesiological behavior of pelvic floor structures during filling and voiding. EMG may also be useful in the evaluation of neurologically intact individuals with obstructive pressure-flow studies in the absence of an anatomical obstruction dysfunctional voiding. The study may be quantitative or qualitative: The quantitative EMG kinesiological EMG allows an assessment of the state of relaxation or contraction of the muscle investigated, and that is what is normally detected with an equipment of urodynamics. For this type of recording, surface electrodes are appropriate. The qualitative EMG neurophysiological EMG is the recording of the action potentials of muscle cells investigated through needle electrodes and recording oscilloscope with sound recording.

Comparison of quantitative techniques in anal sphincter electromyography
Anorectal manometry measures how strong the anal sphincter muscles are; as well as whether they relax during passage of stool. To prepare for anorectal manometry, do not eat or drink anything 2 hours before your procedure. The test is done for patients with chronic constipation and fecal incontinence.
The external anal sphincter or sphincter ani externus is a flat plane of skeletal muscle fibers, elliptical in shape and intimately adherent to the skin surrounding the margin of the anus. In a considerable proportion of cases the fibers decussate in front of the anus, and are continuous with the superficial transverse perineal muscle. Posteriorly, they are not attached to the coccyx, but are continuous with those of the opposite side behind the anal canal. The upper edge of the muscle is ill-defined, since fibers are given off from it to join the levator ani.
