A staff management system for maintaining treatment gains achieved on a specialized continence unit located in a geriatric nursing home was effective in maintaining prompted voiding activities with corresponding maintenance of improved patient continence, however, a gradual decline in staff performance was noted.
Operant conditioning of rectosphincteric responses in the treatment of fecal incontinence.
The findings highlight the importance of synchronized rectosphincteric responses in the maintenance of fecal continence and show that these responses can be brought under voluntary control in patients with chronic fecal incontinence, even when theincontinence is secondary to organic lesions.
Irritable bowel syndrome: physiological and psychological differences between diarrhea-predominant and constipation-predominant patients.
There was no correlationbetween amount of psychopathology and either colonic motility or severity of symptoms in the whole group of IBS patients, and patients with IBS showed significantly elevated levels on the following psychological traits.
Prevalence, incidence and correlates of urinary incontinence in healthy, middle-aged women.

Behavioral training for post-prostatectomy urinary incontinence.

Biofeedback Treatment of Fecal Incontinence in Geriatric Patients
Biofeedback training did significantly augment sphincter strength and was associated with greater than 75 per cent decreases in incontinence for 10 patients, and appears to be of specific value in the treatment of fecal incontinent in geriatric patients.
Normative patterns of diurnal urination across 6 age decades.
The patterns and frequency of diurnal urination were studied in 412 male and 244 female participants in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging and an age by sex interaction showed that voiding in men increased across the decades and in women it decreased.
Urinary incontinence in the elderly. Bladder-sphincter biofeedback and toileting skills training.
Behavioral treatment of urinary incontinence was given to 39 elderly outpatients, and 13 of the patients achieved total continence, and 19 had fewer than one accident per week after treatment.
