The continence organ is the mechanism for closing the anus. The continence organ comprises of several anatomical structures.
The correct function and interaction of the individual components is of great importance for continence. The most important components are the rectum, the sphincter, the hemorrhoidal plexus (corpus cavernosum recti), the lining of the anal canal and the associated nerve system.
A range of diseases can effect the continence organ and subsequently limit continence or lead to anal incontinence. These include rectal cancer, hemorrhoids, fistula and abscesses.
