Syb defecogram

SYB: Defecogram

By BorkoKereshi, MSIII


The case

The Case

  • 32 year old female with a history of:

    • Chronic constipation

    • Straining

    • Irritable Bowel Syndrome


Defecogram the technique

Defecogram: The Technique

  • Approximately 1 hour before the study the patient ingests one bottle of thin barium to visualize the small bowel for possible enterocele.

  • Barium paste is instilled into the rectum.

  • A small metallic marker is placed on the skin near the anus.

  • The patient is imaged in the lateral projection during the following maneuvers…


The 7 steps of a defecogram

The 7 Steps of a Defecogram

  • 1: Rest

  • 2: Cough

  • 3: Squeeze

  • 4: Valsalva

  • 5: Evacuation

  • 6: Post-evacuation valsalva

  • 7: Post-evacuation rest

Rest


Cough

Cough

no incontinence during coughing


Squeeze

Squeeze

appropriate motion of the anorectal angle during the squeeze


Valsalva

Valsalva

appropriate motion of the anorectal angle during the valsalva maneuver


Evacuation

Evacuation

Anterior rectocele

Anterior Rectocele


Evacuation3

Evacuation

Any other abnormalities noted?


Evacuation4

Evacuation


Puborectalis dyskinesia

Puborectalis Dyskinesia

  • contraction of the puborectalis during evacuation (left arrow in preceding image)

  • Additionally, there is contraction of the anal sphincter during evacuation consistent with sphincter dyskinesia (right arrow)


Post evacuation valsalva

Post-evacuation valsalva


Post evacuation rest

Post-evacuation rest

Small post void residual


Syb defecogram

  • The patient required multiple efforts of Valsalva and squeeze to evacuate the barium.

  • This impaired contraction is highly predictive of anismus

    • Anismus: malfunction of the external anal sphincter and puborectalis muscle during defecation

    • More common in women

    • Sometimes associated with sexual abuse
