The FENIX® Continence Restoration System

Faecal Incontinence is the inability to control your bowel movements, causing stool to leak unexpectedly from your rectum. Faecal incontinence can range from occasional leakage of a small quantity of stool to a complete loss of bowel control. An incompetent anal sphincter can be a primary factor in bowel incontinence.

The FENIX® Continence Restoration System is designed to treat Faecal incontinence by augmenting the incompetent anal sphincter to restore continence.

 

UNDERSTANDING FAECAL INCONTINENCE

Faecal Incontinence is the inability to control your bowel movements, causing stool to leak unexpectedly from your rectum. Faecal incontinence can range from occasional leakage of a small quantity of stool to a complete loss of bowel control. An incompetent anal sphincter can be a primary factor in bowel incontinence.

How Does the FENIX® System Work?

The FENIX® Continence Restoration System is a small, flexible band of interlinked titanium beads with magnetic cores. The magnetic attraction between the beads augments the anal sphincter, creating a barrier to involuntary passage of Faecal matter. The magnetic bond is temporarily broken to allow the voluntary passage of stool and restored immediately thereafter.

How is the FENIX System Implanted?

The FENIX® System is placed around the anal sphincter during a surgical procedure that requires a single incision and is usually completed in one hour. A customized sizing tool is used to ensure the correct size device is selected. Once the correct size is confirmed using x-ray, the FENIX® System is implanted and secured by tying sutures together. The correct size is again confirmed using x-ray. Patients generally go home the day after surgery.
