Anal Manometry

Anal Manometry is a study of the pressures generated in the anal canal.  It is also a painless examination performed on an outpatient basis in one of the Cedars Sinai clinics. A specialized catheter will be placed into the anal canal and pressure readings from it will be obtained while the anus is at rest, squeezing, straining, and coughing.  The data will be used to create a 3-D map of the pressures generated in the anal canal.
