Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

This manuscript summarizes the work of Committee 10 on neurologic bladder and bowel of the International Consultation on Incontinence in 2008-2009. As the data are very large the outcome is presented in different manuscripts. This manuscript deals with neurologic fecal incontinence (FI).

METHODS:

Through in debt literature review all aspects of neurologic urinary and FI were studied for levels of evidence. Recommendations for diagnosis and treatment, and for future research were made.

RESULTS:

Pathophysiology was summarized for different levels of lesions. For epidemiology, specific diagnostics, conservative treatment, and surgical treatment of neurologic FI levels of evidence and grades of recommendation were made.

CONCLUSIONS:

Though data are available that advice and guide in the management of FI in neurologic patients, not many data are with a high level of evidence or high grade of recommendation. More and well-structured research is needed.
