Iatrogenic sphincteric lessions after surgery, specially obstetrics (after clild delivery) when instrumentation manouvers with forceps or an episiotomy were needed, are the main causes related to Fecal Incontinence associated to sphincter damage.

Surgical sphincter repair (Sphincteroplasty) consists on anal sphincter suturing or plication, allowing for an anatomical reconstruction of the anal canal. By this, we can achieve improvement or correction of fecal incontinence.

However, proper physical examination as well as Endorectal Ultrasound (ERUS) is mandatory, in order to locate the damage as well as the extension, so that we can perform a correct surgical reconstruction.
