JENSEN B, CHRISTIAN; CHIONG L, HÉCTOR; LLANOS B, JOSÉ LUIS  e  CUMSILLE G, MIGUEL ÁNGEL. Non stimulated gracilis muscle transposition for fecal incontinence: Non stimulated graciloplasty (Pickrell's operation). Does it play a role to day in the management of the severe anal incontinence?. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.3, pp.261-265. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262009000300008.

Pickrell procedure or non stimulated gracilis muscle transposition is used for the management of severe fecal incontinence. We report four males and one female, aged 6 to 68 years, with severe incontinence, that were operated. Surgical complications were wound dehiscence in two patients, a deep venous thrombosis in one patient and chronic pain in the zone of muscle insertion in one patient. There was an improvement in the voluntary contraction pressure of the sphincter in four of five patients and a significant reduction in the incontinence score.

Palavras-chave : Gracilis muscle transposition; Pickrell procedure; fecal incontinence.
