The surgical management of faecal incontinence.


The surgical management of faecal incontinence is complex and technically demanding. Surgery should only be offered once the aetiology has been correctly identified and the patient has been counselled regarding outcomes of success. This may only approach 80%, with long-term results declining with time.
