Critical appraisal of international guidelines for the management of fecal incontinence in adults: is it possible to define what to do in different clinical scenarios?
Fecal incontinence (FI) is a complex often multifactorial functional disorder which is associated with a significant impact on patients’ quality of life. There is a broad spectrum of symptoms, and degrees of severity and diverse patient backgrounds. Several treatment algorithms from different professional societies and experts are available in the literature. However, no consensus has been reached on several aspects of FI management. We performed a critical review of the most recently pub- lished guidelines on FI, emphasising the lack of consensus, highlighting specific topics mentioned in each of the guidelines that are not covered in the others and defining the treatment proposed in different clinical scenarios.
