Aims and Objectives
Faecal Incontinence is a common symptom afflicting females at all stages of life. Further history of a prior obstetric trauma (acute or remote) may complicate pathology even further. In this interactive case based session, co-sponsored by the Pelvic Floor Disorders Committee of the American Society of Colorectal Surgeons and the International Continence Society, we will focus on the current multidisciplinary understanding and treatment of this complex multifactorial disorder.
