Gene context of Fecal Incontinence

  • Expression of galanin and the GALR1 galanin receptor subtype in the colon of children with paradoxical fecal incontinence [17].
  • CONCLUSION: Urinary incontinence frequently coexists with fecal incontinence [18].
  • Indications were as follows: APR + synchronous restoration of the excised sphincter by graciloplasty (n = 12); total anorectal reconstruction (TAR) following APR in the past (n = 6); Patients with acquired fecal incontinence (n = 4); and Congenital atresia (n = 6) [19].
  • One-way ANOVA was used to correlate Fecal Incontinence Severity Index with quality-of-life measures [20].
  • METHODS: We reviewed the records of all 22 patients with fecal incontinence secondary to obstetric trauma who were evaluated by endoanal ultrasound and underwent surgical management in our department from April to 1997 to April 2002 [21].
