Anorectal Disorders

These guidelines summarize the definitions, diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, and treatments of a group of benign disorders of anorectal function and/or structure. Disorders of function include defecation disorders, fecal incontinence, and proctalgia syndromes, whereas disorders of structure include anal fissure and hemorrhoids. Each section reviews the definitions, epidemiology and/or pathophysiology, diagnostic assessment, and treatment recommendations of each entity. This EvidenceCare Protocol is based on the American College of Gastroenterology 2014 publication “ACG Clinical Guideline: Management of Benign Anorectal Disorders”.
