Laparoscopic Assisted ACE Procedure for Fecal Incontinence in Children (I)
Neurogenic bowel conditions are often part of severe congenital malformations, such as spina bifida, cloaca, or imperforate anus. Affected patients frequently require aggressive daily bowel management to prevent constipation and continuous stool leakage. The regular application of retrograde enemas, often in combination with manual disimpaction, is necessary to ensure proper empting of the rectal vault. Many of the affected children are either wheelchair bound or have limited dexterity, making them dependent on a caretaker to perform the rectal procedures.
