This article reports on the development and preliminary validation of a new scale to measure the impact of faecal incontinence (Fl) in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Fl has been defined as the involuntary or inappropriate passage of kieces. Here researchers have used a broader definition to include anal incontinence. There is a misconception that Fl results only from neurological disorders or obstetric trauma.
