Nursing implications

Nursing assessment

  • Assess frequency of fecal incontinence before and after therapy.

Potential Nursing Diagnoses

Diarrhea (Indications)

Implementation

  • Dextranomer hyaluronate should only be administered by physicians experienced in performing anorectal procedures and having successfully completed a comprehensive training and certification program in injection procedure.
  • Injections are made in midline of anterior wall of rectum. Use a new needle and syringe with each injection. Hold needle at injection site for additional 15–30 seconds to minimize leakage. May require repeated injections. Avoid in men with enlarged prostate.
    • Do not inject IV; may cause vascular occlusion.
  • Pre-treatment—evacuate rectum with an enema immediately prior injection. Follow by cleansing area with antiseptic. Prophylactic antibiotics are recommended.

Patient/Family Teaching

  • Explain purpose and procedure to patient.
  • Inform patient that dextranomer hyaluronate is not effective for all patients with fecal incontinence and repeat treatment may be required for treatment effect.
  • Explain post-treatment care and potential adverse events to patient.
  • Advise patient that implants might be detected during future anorectal examinations and radiographic imaging of pelvis. Instruct patient to inform all future treating physicians about presence of Solesta gel. If future surgery (e.g., hemorrhoidectomy) is needed Solesta implant can be resected.

Evaluation/Desired Outcomes

  • Fewer episodes of fecal incontinence.
