Internal anal sphincter (IAS) atrophy in patients with systemic sclerosis

1 post in this topic

Internal anal sphincter (IAS) atrophy in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

Patients with SSc (both symptomatic and asymptomatic) have thin and atrophic internal anal spincters (IAS), suggesting that IAS atrophy develops even in asymptomatic patients and this may be amenable to treatment with sacral neuromodulation. Nora M. Thoua, Rheumatology, April 18, 2011. (Also see: Bowel Incontinence)
