With the advent of a digital and computer-based diagnostic system for this procedure, there is now no longer a need for a surgeon to perform a physical examination.
However, in the past, this procedure was carried out in a clinic and not in a hospital setting.
This is now changing.
With the advent for the new digital diagnosis system, a team of surgeons is now required to carry out a physical exam, which can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
This can be particularly difficult if the patient has an enlarged fistula.
In order to make sure this is performed correctly, the surgeon must also be aware of the patient’s medical history and their previous symptoms.
According to Dr. Gianluigi D’Arcy, professor of obstetrics at the University of Padova in Italy, the new system is expected to be fully implemented within two years.
In order to be eligible for the digital diagnosis, a patient must be over the age of 35 and have no previous problems with the fistula and also have a positive medical history.
Dr. D’Angelico believes the new diagnostic system will be the first of its kind in the world.
“It’s an important step forward for the country’s health care,” Dr. Dangino said.
“The use of a computerised digital diagnosis is also a very good indication of whether the patient is fit enough to undergo surgery.”
The digital system is already used in other parts of the world, such as in the United Kingdom, where it has been used to diagnose cases of urinary incontinence.
However, in Australia, the system is still used for a different reason.
“We are using it for some of our younger patients who have an enlarged bladder,” Dr Dangio explained.
“This is because it’s a common cause of incontinent urinary continence.
The doctors can now tell if the person is fit, and therefore, has the risk of incurring an enlarged urinary fistula.”
