[The importance of the Musculus canalis ani for continence and anorectal diseases (author's transl)].

[Article in German]


The functional morphology of the M. canalis ani is described. Hitherto this muscle has not been studied in detail. The M. canalis ani is located inside of the M. sphincter ani internus and reaches through the spatium submucosum et subcutaneum of the analcanal. This muscle is part of a described "organ of continence". Its importance in the course of anorectal disease is shown.
