The enema continence catheter in spina bifida: successful bowel management.

Abstract

Patients with spina bifida who have fecal incontinence are managed by means of a large-volume saline enema. To facilitate administration of the enema, a special catheter has been devised that prevents leakage of the enema fluid. Continence has been achieved in 112 children and youths with spina bifida who were managed in this fashion.
