This book focuses on the management of children with fecal incontinence and constipation. Despite accurate anatomic reconstruction, many children still suffer from a variety of functional bowel problems. These include not only children with congenital anatomic problems such as anorectal malformations and Hirschsprung disease, but also includes the huge population of children who suffer from constipation, with or without soiling, and a large spinal population (spina bifida) who have bowel problems.
