Purpose:

Supporting the pelvic floor can reduce symptoms of constipation in patients with refractory constipation due to pelvic floor laxity and excessive perineal descent by means of a modified toilet seat, known as "the Bottom's Up".


Study summary:

Efficacy and safety of a unique pelvic floor support device that fits into the Radiology defecography commode will be tested. Patients with refractory constipation due to known pelvic floor laxity and/or excessive perineal descent will be examined without, then with the device in place. Patients will complete questionnaires pertaining to device safety and efficacy before and after using the device. Radiographic images to document efficacy of support plus adequate emptying will be acquired during the study resulting in very low dose radiation exposure.


Criteria:

10 Males and female subjects greater that 18 years of age with aggravated constipation due to pelvic floor laxity of at least 4 cm and excessive perineal descent of at least 4 cm will be evaluated. Patients with constipation but no excessive laxity or descent will not be evaluated. Patients must be willing to sign consent, undergo defecography with and without "The Bottom's Up" device.
