Specific Investigations

After medical treatment fails and no abnormality is found on laboratory values, specific investigations are per-formed.2 At our institution, this would consist of a multiple contrast defecating proctogram, a colonic transit study, and anal physiology testing. The multiple contrast defecating proctogram involves contrast given from the oral, bladder, vaginal, and rectal route. The aim is to identify enteroceles, rectoceles, sigmoidoceles, or internal intussusception, all of which can lead to debilitating constipation. Paradoxical puborectalis contraction may also be seen, but this is usually diagnosed with anal physiology testing.
