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

Lateral Episiotomy or Not in Vacuum Assisted Delivery in Non-parous Women

The study has started at Danderyd Hospital. Danderyd Hospital is a large teaching hospital affiliated to the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Danderyd Hospital attends approximately 7 000 deliveries annually, of which 330 are vacuum extractions in non-parous women. Other hospitals in Stockholm County and other parts of Sweden are ...

Phase N/A

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

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Sacral Nerve Stimulation for Faecal Incontinence - Placebo or Clinical Effective

Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) has over the last 20 years been recognised as an efficient treatment option for faecal incontinence (FI). The therapy is recommended by the International Continence Society (ICS) if conservative treatments such as; regulation of diet and fibre supplements, medication, biofeedback therapy, glycerol suppositories, mini enema or ...

Phase N/A

Feasibility Study of the Use of the gekoTM Device for Faecal Incontinence in Older People Living at Home or in Care Homes

This research aims to investigate the feasibility for the treatment of OnPulse(TM) for the treatment of faecal incontinence (FI) (including mixed faecal and urinary incontinence) in older people living at home or in a Care Home. It will determine patient acceptability, tolerability and usability of the T-2 gekoTM device for ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Fecal Incontinence by Injection of Autologous Muscle Fibers Into the Anal Sphincter

Aim To investigate efficacy and safety in a new treatment with injection of autologous muscle fibers into the anal sphincter in patients with fecal incontinence. Method Patients with fecal incontinence after obstetric anal sphincter rupture will be included. After inclusion, they will be offered 3 months of pelvic floor muscle ...

Phase N/A

Transverse Coloplasty vs. Side-to-end Anastomosis Following Low Anterior Resection (LAR): CSAR Trial

This study directly compares two neorectal reservoir-techniques, the transverse coloplasty and the side-to-end anastomosis, in low anterior resection in distal rectal cancer for the first time. Its focus is on the functional results. Besides stool frequency, the quality of life, safety of the procedures and the usage of stool modulating ...
