Fecal Incontinence

Also called Feacal Incontinence or bowel incontinence.

An inability to control bowel movements, causing stool (feces) to leak from your rectum.

Common causes of fecal incontinence include muscle or nerve damage, a weakened anal sphincter associated with aging or caused by injury to the nerves and muscles of the rectum and anus whilst giving birth.

If the anal sphincter muscle is indeed the problem detrusan® electrical stimulation therapy can exercise the muscle to restore the strength it needs to regain normal function and retain stools until a toilet is available.

detrusan® is a breakthrough FDA approved therapy for the treatment of urinary incontinence. If you suffer from UI, please take the time to peruse the information in this site and see if detrusan® is right for you.
