Continence et mucoviscidose chez l’enfant : du diagnostic des troubles à la prévention par le masseur-kinésithérapeute

Abstract : Adults with cystic fibrosis are at risk of urinary and anal incontinence due to progressive weakness of pelvic floor muscles secondary to recurrent episodes of coughing, but little is known about children with cystic fibrosis. The purpose of this study was to show the existence and the impact of incontinence in children’s daily life, and to find which physiotherapist techniques can be used. Methods : questionnaires were distributed to children aged 8 to 18 years old in cystic fibrosis centers. Results: 48 complete responses were analyzed using a statistical method based on basic sorting and cross sorting. 22% of children are affected by urinary stress incontinence and 67,5% by gas leaks. Besides being embarrassed by their leaks, 40% of them don’t dare to talk about it. Conclusion : the intervention of physiotherapist is relevant in the management of incontinence in children with cystic fibrosis through prevention, education, and specific pelvic flor muscle strengthening exercises.
