Abstract:
Study of bowel management practices, satisfaction with bowel management, incidence of incontinence, and lifestyle effects for children and adolescents with spinal cord injury (SCI). Data are from 31 responses to a survey of 45 children and youth with SCI. It was found that lifestyle limitations, bowel accidents, dependence in bowel management, and child/youth and family dissatisfaction were all serious problems for children and youth with SCI.
