Retroscopy and anoscopy as a diagnostic method
Anoscopy and rectoscopy are safe and gentle methods of endoscopy. They can accurately and reliably determine the condition of the sigmoid and rectum. As a result, the doctor will choose the optimal treatment option without consequences and complications.
The method is based on the use of a special device - a sigmoidoscope and an anoscope. With their help, you can identify even the initial stage of inflammation, identify pathologies or defects of a congenital or acquired character.
Devices are able to penetrate to a depth of 28-32 cm for testing the sigmoid colon and 8-12 cm for the anus. If the hemorrhoids or other deficiencies are too high, it is not advisable to apply the anoscope. In this case, use the rectoapparatus.
In both cases, the procedure resembles a normal rectal examination. The doctor will accurately, painlessly and accurately carry out her every step. It's nothing to be afraid of!
