Defaecography and Incontinence

  • M.-C. Marti
Conference paper

Abstract

Incontinence can be defined as an inability to retain the rectal contents (solid or liquid faeces and gas) or to control excretion in inappropriate places or at inappropriate times. Incontinence is not caused by a single dysfunction or anomaly, but by several related disturbances interfering with the normal mechanisms of continence.
