Potty Foot Stool May Help Your Constipation
After four weeks of using a toilet stool, 71 percent of the study participants had faster bowel movements and 90 percent reported less straining, according to the research published online recently in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology.
CONCLUSION: The experience of specific SHCs in the first 6 months after an SCI is related to greater long-term disability. In order to reduce the disability burden of people with SCI, efforts should be directed toward early prevention of these SHCs. PMID: 30882288 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: US-guided ganglion impar block is technically feasible and safe technique. USG can be used to locate sacrococcygeal junction (SCJ) and facilitate the performance of ganglion impar block. The efficacy and safety of the US-guided ganglion impar blockades needs a proper evaluation in the randomized controlled trials.
ConclusionsLSP improved women ’s symptoms and quality of life. Postoperative constipation, sensation of prolapse recurrence, and concomitant UI surgery were strongly associated with postoperative dissatisfaction.
Michael Levin's letter “Functional constipation in children: Is there a place for surgical treatment” has prompted me to respectfully introduce to your readers a squatting-based pelvic floor rehabilitation regime (PFR) which may be helpful in selected children before surgery is contemplated. We have found it works wel l in premenopausal women who have bladder, bowel and chronic pain conditions (Tables 1&2) [1,2]. This PFR is very different from Kegel-type exercises. It is based on a musculoelastic theory of bladder and anorectal function/dysfunction [3,4] (Fig.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThe goal of the present review is to explore the relationship between dietary changes and alterations in gut microbiota that contribute to disorders of gut motility and obesity.Recent FindingsWe review the microbiota changes that are seen in obesity, diarrhea, and constipation and look at potential mechanisms of how dysbiosis can predispose to these. We find that microbial metabolites, particularly short chain fatty acids, can lead to signaling changes in the host enterocytes. Microbial alteration leading to both motility disorders and obesity may be mediated by the release of hormones including gl...
ConclusionThe important balance between adequate analgesia and minimising OIC symptoms is an ongoing challenge for clinicians, and an area of patient care where nurses could be leading management.
