Anal incontinence, also called fecal (stool) incontinence is the inability to control bowel movements, causing unexpected leakage from the rectum. Anal incontinence can range from an occasional to constant leakage. Main cause of fecal incontinence is a muscle or nerve damage. The muscle or nerve damage may be due to a trauma or may be simply associated with aging. Treatments can improve fecal incontinence and the quality of life.
Anal incontinence can dramatically interfere with daily activities, causing embarrassment and negatively impacting quality of life.
