Dear Dr. Aroon Kamath, a very good compilation indeed! As a dermatologist I would like to add a few words,especially allergic or anaphylactic reactions to latex.  These reactions are seen,though rarely, in both medical personnel as well as patients,especially if they have a history of atopy.It would be prudent therefore to enquire for history of asthma or atopy before using or applying balloon devices, especially when used relating to rectal mucosa.
