Go[edit]

Go on. Let's see a whole encyclopedia entry on encopresis. Wetman 19:41, 27 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Soiling Article Merger[edit]

I was going to clean up the Soilingarticle, but the header points to this article and says that a merger has been suggested. If a merger is imminent, I won't clean up that particular mess. Anyone have any suggestions?

Anismus[edit]

The article now says encopresis is a cause of anismus; the general view in the medical literature is that anismus is a cause of encopresis. 66.167.43.31 (talk) 22:59, 15 August 2010 (UTC)

Up where?[edit]

Alternatively, when this method fails for six months or longer, a more aggressive approach may be undertaken using the “bottom up” approach
"“bottom up” approach"

I removed references to "top-down" and "bottom-up" on the reason that they are tautologies, as the nature of the two approaches can be understood from the explanations that follow. Devil Master (talk) 21:58, 19 April 2011 (UTC)

Encopresis is a pediatric term[edit]

I have changed the intro to accordingly. Liquid stool incontinence in adults is a separate clinical topic from this phenomena in children.

I am working on this to be either a new page, or to add to the main fecal incontinence page.Tepi (talk) 13:33, 3 July 2012 (UTC)

Update: this page was created as fecal leakage, since this was the most common term used for it in adults.Tepi (talk) 22:46, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

Rectoanal inhibitory response is not the same as anismus[edit]

Whoever placed references in the text regarding RAIR is confused. It is not the same as anismus. RAIR is present in healthy people, indeed there would be problems if it was not present.

RAIR is involuntary relaxation of internal sphincter when rectum is distended. It is present during anesthesia ebcause it is reflexive, i.e. not under voluntary control.

I think the previous author meant to use term rectoanal excitatory reflex (RAER), which is contraction of external anal sphincter with rectal distension.Tepi (talk) 13:40, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
