Functional constipation is a common intestinal functional disease in clinic, although there is no related organic disease, if long term accompanied by functional constipation patients, it can cause anal intestinal diseases (hemorrhoids, anal fissure, anal distension, rectal cancer, etc.). The purpose of this study is to explore the treatment of middle aged functional constipation patients with biofeedback therapy combined with psychological intervention through the combination of theory and clinic, to find an effective, simple and low recurrence rate treatment. According to the inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria, 150 adult patients with functional constipation diagnosed in the anorectal surgery clinic of our hospital from March 2017 to October 2018 were randomly divided into two groups: treatment group (n=75) and control group (n=75). There is no difference in general data, defecation symptoms, clinical symptoms and psychological problems between the two groups. The patients in the two groups were treated for 3 w respectively. After 3 w of treatment, the observation indexes of the two groups before and after treatment were statistically analyzed and the recurrence of functional constipation was statistically analyzed after drug withdrawal. Comparison of clinical efficacy: among the 75 patients, 30 cases were cured, 24 cases were markedly effective, 14 cases were cured, 7 cases were ineffective and the total effective rate was 90.67 %. Among the 75 patients in the control group, 23 cases were cured, 24 cases were markedly effective, 8 cases were effective, 20 cases were ineffective and the total effective rate was 73.3 %. The chi square test showed that the difference between the two data was statistically significant (p<0.05). Biofeedback combined with psychological intervention is effective in the treatment of functional constipation in terms of defecation symptoms, clinical symptoms and psychological problems.
