The Cost of Fecal Incontinence

In a Dutch study [5], published in 2005, the mean annual cost of a patient affected by fecal incontinence was reported to be 2,169 euros, namely 1,051 euros referring to direct costs and 1,118 euros to indirect costs. An Italian investigation [6], conducted in that same year, recorded the direct costs alone as 1,103 euros, an amount almost identical to that reported in the Dutch study (Table 4). The paucity of data available in the literature is, therefore, offset by a certain homogeneity in the results. The individual cost items are examined below, with particular attention being focused on the distinction between the direct costs involved both in health care and non-health care.
