Bowel Dysfunction

James Doty and Jonathan E. Efron

Pelvic floor disorders involving bowel dysfunction include several different clinical problems such as fecal incontinence, constipation, and prolapse of the rectum. These disorders are often complex, involving the functions of smooth and skeletal muscles, their nerves, and connective tissues. Etiologies of these disorders are either posttrau-matic (such as from vaginal birth or prior anorectal surgery) or acquired, developing from chronic evacuation problems or with age. In some cases, the cause is idiopathic. Management strategies for the treatment of these disorders have evolved and continue to evolve as we better understand the nature of these problems.
