Core Tip Clinicians need to be more alert to fecal incon-tinence, which is a serious under-reported problem. Endoanal ultrasonography is currently the gold standard for sphincter evaluation in these patients. The most important cause of fecal incontinence is obstetric injury and the most relevant questions and controversies are related to this. The diagnosed of sphincter injury after delivery and after complete primary repair is much lower to that found by ultrasonography, and many of these women developed fecal incontinence. The clinical evaluation, technical aspects, advantages and limitations and the current role of three dimensional ultrasonography and real-time elastography will also be discussed.
