3 hand anal
Anal cancer is a type of cancer that forms in tissues of the anus. The anus is the opening of the rectum to the outside of the body and at the end of the GI tract. Sometimes anal cancer causes no symptoms at all. But bleeding is often the first sign of the disease.
Experience with a new prosthetic anal sphincter in three coloproctological centres
Pinworms are parasites that live in the intestines. The infection is spread by ingesting microscopic pinworm eggs. Young children often put their hands in their mouths and may not practice good hand hygiene before eating. An infected child may spread the infection if he gets eggs from the anal area on his hands and touches other children's hands or food. Eggs can get on objects such as shared toys, bedding, clothing, and toilet seats.
Fecal incontinence is a common and severely disabling disorder. For patients with severe fecal incontinence, surgery may prove to be the only adequate treatment option. This study reports on 43 patients that were treated with a prosthetic sphincter system between and in three coloproctological centres. Main Outcome Measures: complications, anal pressures before and after surgery, fecal continence score. The new artificial sphincter system significantly improves continence but leads to some complications in clinical practice.
