The goal of the present study was to evaluate permanent stoma formation and defecation function in long-term follow up after surgery for low rectal cancer without a diverting stoma. Subjects were 275 patients who underwent sphincter-preserving surgery for low rectal cancer between 2000 and 2012. Clinical outcomes were evaluated and defecation function was assessed based on a questionnaire survey, using Wexner and modified fecal incontinence quality of life (mFIQL) scores. Incidence of anastomotic leakage was 21...

REVIEW
Samantha Lawson, Ashley Sacks
Pelvic floor dysfunction is defined as abnormal function of the pelvic floor and includes conditions that can have significant adverse impacts on a woman's quality of life, including urinary incontinence (stress, urge, and mixed), fecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual dysfunction, diastasis recti abdominis, pelvic girdle pain, and chronic pain syndromes. Women's health care providers can screen for, identify, and treat pelvic floor dysfunction. This article examines the case of a woman with multiple pelvic-floor-related problems and presents the evidence for the use of pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) for pregnancy-related pelvic floor dysfunction...

Introduction: Faecal incontinence affects approximately 8-9% of the adult population. The condition is surrounded by taboo; it can have a devastating impact on quality of life and lead to major limitations in daily life. Pelvic floor muscle training in combination with information and fibre supplements is recommended as first-line treatment for faecal incontinence. Despite this, the effect of pelvic floor muscle training for faecal incontinence is unclear. No previous trials have investigated the efficacy of supervised pelvic floor muscle training in combination with conservative treatment and compared this to an attention-control massage treatment including conservative treatment...

Sacral neuromodulation(SNM) procedure has become a new therapy to treat chronic constipation and fecal incontinence. The surgical procedure is easy and safe. It has a small incision compared with traditional surgery and is mainly used in patients whose traditional treatment was unsuccessful. Chronic constipation is one of the most common digestive symptoms. The quality of life in patients with severe constipation has decreased greatly. Although the incidence of fecal incontinence in China is not as high as that of constipation, it also seriously affects the life of the patients, resulting in a decline in the quality of life...

PURPOSE: Patients with cancer of the lower and middle rectum who are candidates for curative surgery often have negative opinions on definitive colostomy. The purpose of this study is to compare the quality of life (QoL) of patients who undergo standard treatment for rectal cancer with sphincter preservation or definitive colostomy. METHODS: A total of 125 patients with adenocarcinoma of the lower or middle rectum who underwent radical surgery with curative intent with a follow-up ≥ 1 year were recruited: 83 patients (group 1) were subjected to low anterior resection and low colorectal or coloanal anastomosis-thus preserving their sphincter-and 42 (group 2) were treated with abdominoperineal resection, followed by terminal definitive colostomy...

PURPOSE:  Dynamic graciloplasty (DGP) has been used to treat severe fecal incontinence since the 1980s. Previous studies have shown an inferior outcome in patients with anorectal malformations (ARMs). Our experience has been that DGP has been appreciated by ARM -patients. The objective of the study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of DGP in our patients with ARM compared with patients with other underlying conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Twenty-three patients operated with DGP at our institution from 1996 to 2010 were sent validated bowel function and quality of life questionnaires...

PURPOSE: Despite devoting many resources to managing urinary and fecal incontinence (UI and FI) in children with spina bifida (SB), it remains unclear whether either is associated with lower health-related quality of life (HRQOL). We sought to determine the impact of UI and FI on HRQOL in this population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Children with SB (8-17 years) living in the United States were surveyed online and in SB clinics (2013-15). We evaluated incontinence over the previous 4 weeks using a UI dry interval (<4 h, ≥4 h), FI clean interval (<1 week, ≥ 1 week), and self-reported amount of UI and FI (for each: a lot, medium, a little, none)...
