Faecal incontinence is not rare and most cases can be treated conservatively. Surgical intervention is recommended only if adequate symptom relief is not achieved. Over the last decade, new surgical options have evolved but the results vary substantially. Some have gained broader clinical acceptance based on their efficacy, ease of applicability and risk profile. This article aims to outline methods and results of the surgical techniques that are now frequently applied for anal sphincter insufficiency. In addition, it will put these into the context of a treatment algorithm and present novel techniques that carry potential for the future.
