Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Surgical therapy of anal sphincter insufficiency is only indicated if it leads to symptoms and conservative treatment fails to achieve adequate symptom relief. Various new surgical options have evolved over the last decade but evidence of the efficacy varies substantially. Some have gained broader clinical acceptance based on the efficacy, ease of applicability and low risk profile. The paper aims to outline the currently commonly accepted and frequently applied surgical techniques for the treatment of anal sphincter insufficiency and the results, put these into the context of a treatment algorithm and to present novel techniques which carry potential for the future.
