Anal Manometer

Anorectal manometry is a medical test that measures the ability of the muscles in the anorectal area to contract and relax. This test is especially used to diagnose problems such as chronic constipation and fecal incontinence. This procedure, performed with high-resolution anorectal manometer (HRAM) devices, provides information by recording the activities of the external anus muscle, internal anus muscle, puborectal muscle and levator ani muscle. The test usually does not cause pain to the patient and takes about 20 minutes.
