neurogenic bowel

Marjanne den Braber-Ymker, Martin Lammens, Michel J A M van Putten, Iris D Nagtegaal
Neurogenic bowel dysfunction occurs in a large percentage of adult patients with spina bifida (SB) and spinal cord injury (SCI), significantly affecting their quality of life. Although bowel motility is autonomously regulated by the enteric nervous system (ENS), disruption of the modulation of the ENS by extrinsic innervation as present in many patients with SB and SCI might lead to motility disorders. In order to gain insight in the pathophysiology, we studied histological changes of the neuromuscular structures in the colon of SB and SCI patients...

BACKGROUND: Enteric neural stem/progenitor cells (ENSCs) offer an innovative approach to treating Hirschsprung disease (HSCR) and other enteric neuropathies. However, postnatal-derived human ENSCs have not been thoroughly characterized and their behavior in the embryonic and postnatal intestinal environment is unknown. METHODS: ENSCs were isolated from the intestines of 25 patients undergoing bowel resection, including 7 children with HSCR. Neuronal differentiation and proliferation of ENSCs from submucosal and myenteric plexuses from patients with and without HSCR were characterized...

AIM: The aim of the study is to investigate the effectiveness of Peristeen retrograde continence enema (RCE) in the management of faecal incontinence in children with spina bifida. METHODS: We identified a homogenous group of spina bifida patients in whom RCE was initiated (Jan 2006-July 2013). Confidential assessments included (i) Fecal Incontinence Quality Of Life (FIQOL), (ii) St Marks Faecal Incontinence score, (iii) Cleveland Clinic Constipation score and (iv) Neurogenic Bowel Dysfunction score...

Leiomyosarcoma (LMS) is a rare but well-recognized malignant soft tissue sarcoma of smooth muscle origin. Metastases commonly occur in the lungs, liver, kidney, brain, and bone. Cases of metastatic osseous lesions or other extradural space-occupying masses secondary to LMS leading to neurologic compromise are relatively commonplace in the literature. Conversely, cases of intramedullary spinal cord metastasis (ISCM), an unusual entity as a sequela of any cancer, are exceedingly rare as a consequence of LMS. Only 2 cases of an ISCM from LMS are currently documented in the literature, and to the best of our knowledge, no case is described in the rehabilitation literature...

Objective. To investigate the effects and safety of the aqueous extract of the dried, immature fruit of Poncirus trifoliata (L.) Raf., known as Poncirus fructus (PF), in spinal cord injury (SCI) patients with neurogenic bowel. Methods. Thirty-one SCI patients with neurogenic bowel were recruited. Patients were evaluated based on clinical information, constipation score, Bristol Stool Form Scale, stool retention score using plain abdominal radiograph, and colon transit time. PF was administered in dosages of 800 mg each prior to breakfast and lunch for 14 days...

INTRODUCTION: Bladder augmentation is a common surgical intervention for neuropathic bladder dysfunction, and has conventionally been an open procedure. We present a robotic ileocystoplasty to demonstrate the feasibility of an entirely intracorporeal approach in a pediatric patient. METHODS: The patient was a 6 year old (18.5 kg) boy with a neurogenic bladder secondary to lumbar myelomeningocele. Urodynamics revealed a small capacity and poorly compliant bladder and he was incontinent between frequent catheterizations...

OBJECTIVE: To translate and linguistically validate in classical Arabic the French version of the neurogenic bowel dysfunction (NBD). MATERIAL/PATIENTS AND METHODS: The Arabic translation was obtained using the "forward translation/backward translation" method. Multiple sclerosis patients and spinal cord injury patients were included. Clinical measures involved the evaluation of the intestinal and anorectal dysfunction. Patients were asked to respond to a questionnaire twice within a 15-day interval...

OBJECTIVE: Bowel symptoms (constipation and incontinence) are frequent in patients with a neurologic disease. The prevalence of neurogenic bowel dysfunction (NBD) in rehabilitation centers is still largely unknown, their assessment difficult and the use of transanal irrigation non systematic even in presence of severe NBD. OBSERVATIONS: Prospective study by detailed questionnaire, with use of the Neurogenic Bowel Dysfunction Score (0-47) and the Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGI-S), a 1-item questionnaire (absent, mild, moderate, severe) for the severity of the bowel symptoms, and Bristol Stool Chart for stool consistency...

BACKGROUND: People suffering from neurogenic bowel dysfunction (NBD) and an ineffective bowel regimen often suffer from fecal incontinence (FI) and related symptoms, which have a huge impact on their quality of life. In these situations, transanal irrigation (TAI) has been shown to reduce these symptoms and improve quality of life. AIM: To investigate the long-term cost-effectiveness of initiating TAI in patients with NBD who have failed standard bowel care (SBC)...

OBJECTIVES: To describe long-term outcomes of neurogenic bowel dysfunction (NBD), determine changes over time in the type of bowel program, and determine changes in psychosocial outcomes associated with NBD-related factors in adults with pediatric-onset spinal cord injury (SCI). DESIGN: Longitudinal cohort survey. Follow-up occurred annually for a total of 466 interviews, with most participants (75%) contributing to at least 3 consecutive interviews. SETTING: Community PARTICIPANTS: 131 adults who had sustained a SCI before the age of 19 (male, 64...

INTRODUCTION: Bowel symptoms (constipation and incontinence) are frequent in patients with a neurologic disease, but rarely assessed in rehabilitation centres. AIM: To study the prevalence of neurogenic bowel dysfunction (NBD) in those patients, and to assess its severity with the Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGI-S). MATERIAL: Prospective study by questionnaires, with the Neurogenic Bowel Dysfunction Score (0-47) and the PGI-S, a 1-item questionnaire (absent, mild, moderate, severe) for the severity of the bowel symptoms, and the Bristol Stool Chart for stool consistency...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate and compare the morbidity and mortality of cystectomy-ileal conduit urinary diversion in patients with neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction according to the surgical approach, and to evaluate predictive factors of early and late morbidity. METHODS: This was a single-center retrospective study based on 65 patients operated between May 2005 and December 2011. The surgical approach consisted of: laparotomy (n = 11), laparoscopy (n = 14) and robotic (n = 40)...

OBJECTIVE: To explore the outcomes of surgical treatment of sacral neurogenic tumors METHODS: Between 1 January 2003 and 31 December 2012, data on 64 patients with sacral neurogenic tumors treated with surgery were retrospectively analyzed. The mean age of the 64 cases (35 males and 29 females) was 37.2 years (range, 21-69 years); 38 had neurilemmomas and 26 neurofibromas. Thirty-four of the tumors involved S 1 and S 2 , 11 S 3 or lower, and 19 were single presacral soft tissue masses...

The objective of this study was to assess the clinical outcome of vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) after augmentation cystoplasty alone in patients with a hypocompliant neurogenic bladder. Between January 2009 and December 2014, 29 patients with a hypocompliant bladder associated with VUR confirmed by videourodynamics (VUD) preoperatively were recruited in this study. All patients had undergone bladder augmentation with a generous detubularized segment of bowel at our institution. No effort had been made to correct the existing reflux...

PURPOSE: The present study aims to identify clinical and pathological factors that can predict the risk of spinal cord anomalies (SCA) in patients with anorectal malformations (ARM), the need for neurosurgery, and to define the impact of SCA on the outcome of patients with ARM. METHODS: A 16-year retrospective analysis of all patients treated at a single tertiary children's Hospital with diagnosis of ARM. Data were collected to assess the impact of defined clinical characteristics on prevalence of SCA (detected at MRI)...
