Intravesical Injection of Botox for Treating Therapy Refractory Overactive Bladder in Females
The neurotoxin Botox (botulinum neurotoxin type A) is shown to be effective in the treatment of therapy refractory overactive bladder syndrome. Our data suggests a longer during efficacy than known from the use in striated muscle.
The aim of our study is to analyze short- and longterm efficacy after Botox treatment and to evaluate risk factors for non-responders and side effects such as urinary retention.
