Sacral Neuromodulation in Dual Incontinence: Ultrasound and Afferent Nerve Sensation Assessment

One in four women reports bothersome symptoms of a pelvic floor disorder with 16% reporting urinary incontinence (UI), otherwise known as leakage. Likewise, 1 in 5 women with UI reports fecal incontinence (FI). Women with dual incontinence (UI/FI) often have more bothersome symptoms, quality of life impact, and sexual dysfunction ...

Phase N/A

The Multi-disciplinary Treatment of Functional Gut Disorders Study

Randomised controlled trial comparing standard outpatient clinic treatment with multi-disciplinary clinic treatment for functional gastrointestinal disorders. Patients will be followed up to end of clinic treatment and 12 months beyond the end of treatment. Symptoms, quality of life, costs to the healthcare system and psychological outcomes will be assessed.

Phase N/A

Encopresis & MIE (DoD #2)

Toilet training one's child is a nearly universal challenge for parents, but is a particularly distressing ordeal for parents of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Whereas typically developing children generally stop having daytime toileting accidents (i.e., they achieve continence) by 2-4 years of age, most individuals with ASD are ...

Treating Anorectal Dysfunction in MS

The majority of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) suffer from some form of anorectal dysfunction, and these difficulties with bowel function are often ranked as negatively impactful on quality of life as impaired mobility. Despite the significant clinical burden of these symptoms, there remains a paucity of published literature supporting ...

Phase

Neuromodulation Therapy for Fecal Incontinence

Our expected outcome include development of new treatment approaches for FI which are mechanistically based, effective, safe, low cost, less invasive, low risk and less dependent on patient compliance. The impact of our project include a new non-invasive treatment modality for FI, a scientific basis for the development of this ...

Phase N/A

Effect and Tolerance of Botulinum A Toxin Rectal Injections on Fecal Incontinence

Fecal incontinence is a frequent pathology which concerns 10% of the general population and severely alters patients quality of life. The cost of urinary and faecal incontinence has been estimated to be $16 billions a year. Several treatments exist depending on the aetiology of the faecal incontinence: medical treatments, biofeedback ...

Phase

Physical Therapy for Anal Incontinence

The current proposal is focused on examining whether a novel resistance exercise program for the pelvic floor will strengthen pelvic floor muscles and improve symptoms in women with anal incontinence. Anal incontinence is a significant public health issue that is estimated to impact 7-15% of women. Traditional rehabilitation strategies such ...

Phase N/A

Studies in Patients With Defecatory Disorders

Defecatory disorders like chronic constipation and faecal incontinence affect 25% of the population with rising incidence. Defecatory disorders pose a major health care burden and are poorly recognized and treated. The need for better diagnostics and therapeutics is substantial. Currently management options for these patients are limited, partly due to ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of the Fast Fill Technique for Anal Acoustic Reflectometry (AAR) in the Incontinent Anal Sphincter

Anal Acoustic Reflectometry (AAR) is a technique that has been studied in our department over the last 6 years. Sound waves pass into a balloon placed in the anal canal and are used to measure the cross-sectional area. By gradually increasing and decreasing the pressure in the balloon the investigators ...

Phase N/A

Tibial Nerve Stimulation in Combination With Biofeedback

Background: Fecal incontinence (FI) affects 2-13% of an adult general population. The prevalence increases with age, and after 50 years of age prevalence rates up to 26% in women have been reported. Quality of life in patients with FI is decreased considerably, in a similar extent as in patients with ...
