Anorectal Physiology Laboratory Groningen (APLG)

What is APLG?

At the Anorectal Physiology Laboratory Groningen (APLG), we perform fundamental and clinical research related to the physiology and pathophysiology of the anorectum, with a focus on such dysfunctions as constipation and fecal incontinence.

Patients, both children and adults, with problems related to defecation or faecal incontinence are examined at the APLG, in order to determine the cause of their problems, and to establish whether the last section of the colon is functioning properly.
