Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Fecal incontinence is a debilitating condition with considerable impact on quality of life. The artificial bowel sphincter may be used as a treatment option in severe cases in which no less invasive form of therapy is sufficient. RESULTS: Risk of infection and mechanical failure is of particular concern in this artificial device. CONCLUSION: We report a rare late complication: balloon dilation due to hypertonic fillings.
