Translated title of the contribution: Pathophysiology, evaluation and medical treatment of fecal incontinence

Abstract

Fecal incontinence is a common medical problem that is often underreported and poorly managed. This review examines the epidemiology, common pathophysiological mechanisms and diagnostic approaches to patients with fecal incontinence. In addition, I review current trends in the medical treatment of fecal incontinence. A systematic history together with appropriate testing of anorectal morphology and physiology often provides insights regarding the underlying pathogenic mechanisms. This knowledge in turn can guide therapy.
