Helping patients live with an antegrade continence enema (ACE)

11:30 - 12:00

The ACE operation facilitates the self-administration of enemas into the bowel near the caecum. As it has been widely used in children, for the treatment of faecal incontinence and constipation, there is a necessity for health care professionals in adult services to have a greater awareness of this procedure.
