大便失禁

Reality Check: Do You Have Fecal Incontinence?

I suffer from ongoing:

  • Loose stools or diarrhea
  • Strong, excessive, uncontrollable bowel contractions which push out the stool
  • Uncontrolled relaxation of the anal sphincter

If any of these apply, talk to your doctor about Fecal Incontinence.

大便失禁的症状有哪些?

无法控制肠内运动,导致意外漏便。严重程度不一,轻则偶尔漏便,重则排便完全不受控制。大便失禁通常伴有腹泻、便秘、胀气、腹胀和腹部绞痛。

大便失禁有多常见?

NICE 指出,有 1% 至 10% 的成年人受到大便失禁的影响,具体取决于所用大便失禁的定义和频率。发生大便失禁的一般人为中年人。

导致大便失禁的原因是什么?

原因包括便秘、腹泻以及因为肛门括约肌薄弱或断裂引起的肌肉或神经损伤。肛门括约肌的损伤通常由于年龄增长或阴道分娩引起的神经和肌肉损伤所致。  

How is Fecal Incontinence treated?

Treatment typically starts with behavioral modifications, dietary changes, pelvic floor exercises and antidiarrheal medicines to relax the bowel. Percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) with Urgent® PC* is a low-risk, outpatient therapy typically used when conservative treatments aren’t enough but before more invasive treatments. Another option is injection of a bulking agent such as PTQ® to bulk-up weak or damaged muscles surrounding the anal sphincter. Surgery to implant an artificial anal sphincter or to remove a portion of the bowel is also an option.

*URGENT PC® is only indicated for fecal incontinence outside of the UNITED STATES
