The anal sphincters may be divided by direct anal trauma or by severe pelvic injuries. The preoperative clinical assessment may correlate well with intra-operative assessment. As long as about half the sphincter ring remains active there is a good chance of restoring satisfactory faecal continence following a sphincteroplasty.
