Abstract

Fecal incontinence is a common and important problem in the care of the elderly. An understanding of the defecation mechanism, appropriate differential diagnosis, and the best choice of treatment method are necessary to control this problem. Establishing a regular bowel program takes time and energy, but when the final result is continence, it is time and energy well spent.
