Sacral nerve stimulation for faecal incontinence and constipation in adults. Faecal incontinence (FI) and constipation are both socially-embarrassing and physically-disabling conditions that impair quality of life. For both, surgery may be required in a minority of people when more conservative measures fail. However, the invasiveness and irreversible nature of direct surgery on bowel and sphincter muscles, poor long-term outcomes and well-established compIications makes such procedures (...) unappealing for these benign conditions. A less-invasive surgical option to treat faecal incontinence and constipation is direct, low-voltage stimulation of the sacral nerve roots, termed sacral nerve stimulation (SNS). SNS has become the first line surgical treatment for FI in people failing conservative therapies. Its value in the treatment of constipation is less clear.To assess the effects of sacral nerve stimulation using implanted electrodes for the treatment of faecal incontinence and constipation

The Diagnostic Value of a Digital Rectal Examination Compared With High-Resolution Anorectal Manometry in Patients With Chronic Constipation and Fecal Incontinence Digital rectal examination (DRE) is a simple clinical method to diagnose anorectal disorders. High-resolution antorectal manometry (HRAM) based on a spatiotemporal plot is expected to promote improved diagnostic accuracy. However, there are no reports comparing the effectiveness of DRE and HRAM. The aim of our study was therefore (...) to evaluate the diagnostic value of DRE compared with HRAM.A total of 309 consecutive patients with chronic constipation (n=268) or fecal incontinence (n=41) who underwent a standardized DRE, HRAM, and balloon expulsion test were enrolled in this study. The diagnostic yield of DRE compared with HRAM was determined, and agreement between DRE and HRAM data was evaluated.Of the constipated patients, 207 (77.2%) were diagnosed with dyssynergia using HRAM.
