Go on. Let's see a whole encyclopedia entry on encopresis. Wetman 19:41, 27 Jan 2004 (UTC)
Soiling Article Merger
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?
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
I have changed the intro to accordingly. Liquid stool incontinence in adults is a separate clinical topic from this phenomena in children.

Rectoanal inhibitory response is not the same as anismus
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.
