ANIDO ESCOBAR, Vivianne et al. Anorectal motility test in older age women, with faecal incontinence. Rev haban cienc méd [online]. 2010, vol.9, suppl.5, pp.665-672. ISSN 1729-519X.

Faecal Incontinence in women which appears in older age, its a condition that disabled and socially isolated. It is sometimes possible to identify the cause of it, as a recent surgery of the anal canal, but in most patients, there is no immediate cause that relates. In these cases it is more difficult to choose the therapeutic management. Anorectal manometry allows to know the characteristics of the anal canal and pelvic floor, and offers elements for assessing the choice of treatment. In this paper we study a group of incontinent women, aged 60 years and no known cause of the disease. The anal canal was hypotonic, with motility damage both sphincters and also an important group submitted sensory damage.

Palabras clave : Fecal Incontinence; female; Anorectal Manometry.
