Abstract

The descending perineum syndrome is still a controversial clinical entity. Several radiological classifications have been proposed to measure the relationship between the rectum and the pelvic floor. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the reliability of an angular measurement, the posterior rectal inclination, which allows to identify 3 stages of perineal descent. The results of the present study on 30 patients support the validity and the usefulness of this parameter in the evaluation of evacuation disorders.
