35 Possible Causes for Fecal Incontinence, Rapid Progression to Disability

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Our findings may reflect the presence of greater comorbidity leading to earlier death among men than among women with AD, 57 or a more rapid progression of AD in women. 58[dx.doi.org] - 61 The inherent survival advantage of women in general may lead women to live longer, tolerating greater disability, than men.[dx.doi.org]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    Although progression is more rapid, age-related disability milestones are identical to relapsing-onset disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A previous analysis of the British Columbia MS database challenged the view that disability progression is rapid in PPMS, but identified few predictors of disease progression[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , for which prognosis is considered as poor due to the relatively rapid development of advanced disability as compared with RRMS.[globenewswire.com]

  • Spinal Demyelination

    progression to disability within several days to weeks, culminating in the need for hospital admission and aggressive therapy for an acute attack. 5 Among fulminant demyelinating[nature.com] However, the higher incidence of spinal cord lesions often found in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) does contribute to a more rapid development of disability[healthcentral.com] Serial MRI revealed rapid enlargement and post-contrast enhancement ( Figures 1d–f and Figures 2a–c ).[nature.com]

  • Spinal Cord Lesion

    However, the higher incidence of spinal cord lesions often found in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) does contribute to a more rapid development of disability[healthcentral.com] Fecal incontinence Hypotonic anal sphincter Abnormal bulbocavernosus and anal wink reflexes Transverse myelopathy Lesions affecting all or most tracts of the spinal cord[msdmanuals.com] The most important factors are the spasm, decubitus nature, insufficient motivation, deformity, urinary and fecal incontinence.[boneandspine.com]

  • Caudal Spinal Cord Tumor
