Rectal examination presents only 25% sensitivity and a heme-negative exam should not preclude proctoscopy
and eventually rectal surgical exploration.
The status of the internal haemorrhoids was confirmed by proctoscopy
, even in asymptomatic but endoscopically confirmed rectal damage, has a significant role in predicting late radiation-induced proctitis [28, 29].
The level of the primary tumor within the rectum was calculated mostly by rigid proctoscopy
and/or digital rectal examination and expressed as the distance from the anal verge.
(23) A study has documented 100% negative predictive value of MR imaging for bladder or rectal invasion, suggesting that MR imaging can obviate invasive procedures, such as cystoscopy, proctoscopy
, and sigmoidoscopy, and thus can reduce staging costs and morbidity.
This included a digital rectal examination and proctoscopy
. Patients were then referred for a carefully directed translabial ultrasound scan of the rectum and anal sphincters.
Patients and Methods: All patients presenting with rectal bleeding or prolase underwent proctoscopy
to determine the cause of bleeding.
Other endoscopic procedures and their targets include: bronchoscopy (trachea); colonoscopy (colon and large intestine); laryngoscopy (larynx); proctoscopy
(rectum and lower colon); otoscopy (ear canal); cytoscopy (bladder and urinary tract); and gastroscopy (upper gastrointestinal tract).
To signal a fresh start in good relations between Russia and the United States, we gave President Medvedev an actual reset button marked "rectoscopia," or "reset!" But as luck would have it, "rectoscopia" turns out to mean "proctoscopy
." (Why did I believe Joe Biden when he said he knew Russian?) But there is, as always, a bright side; Prime Minister Putin has graciously offered Bill and me complementary proctoscopies at South Ural Teaching Hospital, a lovely gesture!
The proportion of women over 50 who had ever received a colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or proctoscopy
did not differ between 1,031 with diabetes (48.5%) and 6,041 without (48.4%).
Montana has achieved its Healthy People target in just three categories: the percentage of patients with treated chronic kidney failure who received a transplant within three years of renal failure; the percentage of adults age 50 and over who ever had a colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or proctoscopy
; and the percentage of women age 40 and over who had a mammogram in the last two years.
Trichuris eggs can be shed intermittently making repeated fecal testing or proctoscopy
helpful in identifying positive cases.
