The notion that 20 impaired vascular supply caused by raised internal anal sphincter tone causes anal fissures is supported by the findings of Doppler laser flowmetry . The posterior midline, the most common site of an anal fissure, has been shown to receive the lowest flow rate of the four segments. In addition, there is a direct relationship between resting anal pressure and anodermal blood flow, with decreased resting pressures resulting in increased blood flow.

Application of pressure to the rectovaginal septum can reveal the presence of a rectocele . The size of the weakness can be estimated as localised or diffuse.
