Examples of "tenesmus"
Often, rectal tenesmus is simply called tenesmus. The term rectal tenesmus is a retronym to distinguish defecation-related tenesmus from vesical tenesmus.
Vesical tenesmus refers to the feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder following urination. When the word tenesmus is used without modification, it usually refers to rectal tenesmus. Vesical tenesmus is caused by urogenital diaphragm muscle spasms.
Tenesmus has both a nociceptive and a neuropathic component.
Tenesmus is a closely related topic to obstructed defecation.
Tenesmus is characterized by a sensation of needing to pass stool, accompanied by pain, cramping, and straining. Despite straining, little stool is passed. Tenesmus is generally associated with inflammatory diseases of the bowel, which may be caused by either infectious or noninfectious conditions. Conditions associated with tenesmus include:
Tenesmus (rectal) is also associated with the installation of either a reversible or non reversible stoma where rectal disease may or may not be present. Patients who experience tenesmus as a result of stoma installation can experience the symptoms of tenesmus for the duration of the stoma presence. Long term pain management may need to be considered as a result.
Obstructed defecation is one of the causes of chronic constipation. Obstructed defecation could be considered to be a type of bowel obstruction, where it may be classified under large bowel obstruction. Obstructed defecation frequently gives rise to a symptom called tenesmus. Constipation, bowel obstruction and tenesmus are therefore all closely related topics.
Vesical tenesmus is a similar condition, experienced as a feeling of incomplete voiding despite the bladder being empty.
Levator ani syndrome is a condition characterized by brief intermittent burning pain or tenesmus of the rectal or perineal area.
Pain relief is administered concomitantly to the treatment of the primary disease causing tenesmus. Methadone has been shown to be an effective pain-reliever.
Anorectal syphilis is caused by "Treponema pallidum" and is contracted through anoreceptive intercourse. Symptoms are usually minimal, but mucous discharge, bleeding, and tenesmus may be present.
Gouverneur's syndrome is characterised by vesicointestinal fistula with associated suprapubic pain, urinary frequency, pain on passing urine, and tenesmus. It is named after French physician R. Gouverneur.
Rectal tenesmus (Latin, from Greek teinesmos, from teinein to stretch, strain) is a feeling of incomplete defecation. It is the sensation of inability or difficulty to empty the bowel at defecation, even if the bowel contents have already been excreted. Tenesmus indicates the feeling of a residue, and is not always correlated with the actual presence of residual fecal matter in the rectum. It is frequently painful and may be accompanied by involuntary straining and other gastrointestinal symptoms.
The most common symptoms in patients with DLD/NP1 inactivation tumors are rectal prolapse, tenesmus, small bowel obstruction, lingual striated muscle hypertrophy, and priapism. Colonoscopic examination may also reveal "polypy" appearance.
Anal sacs may be removed surgically in a procedure known as anal sacculectomy. This is usually done in the case of recurrent infection or because of the presence of an anal sac adenocarcinoma, a malignant tumor. Potential complications include fecal incontinence (especially when both glands are removed), tenesmus from stricture or scar formation, and persistent draining fistulae.
A common cause of perineal hernia is surgery involving the perineum. Perineal hernia can be caused also by excessive straining to defecate (tenesmus). Other causes include prostate or urinary disease, constipation, anal sac disease (in dogs), and diarrhea. Atrophy of the levator ani muscle and disease of the pudendal nerve may also contribute to a perineal hernia.
In the male we prescribe it in cases of fullness and weight in the perineum, dragging sensations in the testicle, and difficult or tardy urination. In both male and female we sometimes use it with advantage in painful micturition with tenesmus.
Adenoma is the most common colorectal polyp. Adenomas are not malignant, but rarely adenocarcinoma can develop from them. Large adenomas can cause rectal bleeding, mucus discharge, tenesmus, and a sensation of urgency. Mucus production may be so great that it can cause electrolyte disturbances in the blood.
Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Onset time is 12 to 96 hours, and recovery takes 5 to 7 days.
The most commonly observed signs associated with "Shigella" dysentery include colitis, malnutrition, rectal prolapse, tenesmus, reactive arthritis, and central nervous system problems. Further, "S. dysenteriae" is associated with the development of hemolytic-uremic syndrome, which includes anemia, thrombocytopenia, and renal failure.
