The aim of study is to investigate the difference in Maximum Squeeze Pressure in patients with and without pelvic floor muscle training in low anterior resection in peri-operative period
The functional outcome after low anterior resection varies greatly. Proportion of patient suffers from urgency and incontinence. Pelvic muscle disuse with atrophy and fibrosis may be a cause for the poor function. Peri-operative pelvic floor muscle training may preserve pelvic floor muscle bulk and function and thus improve functional outcome after surgery.
