Maintaining anorectal function in patients with rectal cancer using biofeedback training

Andrea M. Stringer


Liu et al. (1) have studied the effects of biofeedback training in maintaining intestinal function in patients with rectal cancer. This study is important, as loss of intestinal control and function following sphincter preserving surgery can be common, and there is a growing number of articles investigating the effectiveness of biofeedback training with promising results (1,2).
