Catto-Smith Y1 - 2014-04-23 PY - 2014 T1 - Fecal Incontinence N2 - Fecal incontinence is a common and disabling condition that unfortunately remains an “orphan” in terms of medical research and effective therapies. This book provides a brief review of the pathophysiology of fecal incontinence with specific focus on women and children. Authorship is drawn internationally, with a strong surgical input. Contributions from the authors provide critical reviews of the evaluation of function, with illustrations of a range of surgical interventions which might be applied should medical therapies fail.
