Emmanuel et al, PLoS One 2021. The use of transanal irrigation (TAI) with Navina™ Smart, is an effective and well tolerated treatment for bowel dysfunction.
We do. At Wellspect, bladder and bowel problems are at the centre of our endeavours. We've made it our mission to remove the stigma around these issues and spread knowledge about the available solutions. One of these is transanal irrigation (TAI). In our ACCT Webinar on February 9th, 14:00-15:00 GMT (15:00 - 16:00 CET), we have put together an educational program that covers transanal irrigation as a possible therapy to manage constipation and faecal incontinence, with examples taken from the latest scientific research. Don’t miss it!
TAI is a proven therapy for managing bowel dysfunction helping thousands to find an effective relief from their bowel dysfunction symptoms. It even promotes better bladder health. But adherence to the therapy in the initial training stage can often be challenging, as the results are not immediate. It happens that some impatient users come back to less effective, but familiar strategies for managing their bowels. How to help them adhere to proven effective TAI therapy, that can truly give life changing positive results? In this case study, we look at the story of one user, who managed to overcome initial obstacles.
This review underscores the negative impact of constipation on children’s well-being and identifies factors associated with lower health-related quality of life in children.
The impact on individuals’ quality of life of maintaining or restoring bladder and bowel continence cannot be underestimated. It is a top user priority but this is unfortunately not always reflected in healthcare and research initiatives.
