Abstract
Many patients with faecal incontinence can be cured using a simple anal sph incter repair. Some patients are unsuitable for this either because the sph incter is absent, too extensively damaged or anal sphincter repair has fail ed. in these patients novel treatments have been introduced to augment, rep lace and stimulate the anal sphincter.
