Patients were injected with 0·6 ml of a solution containing 30 units botulinum toxin A (Botox; Allergan, Ireland).
A 27-G needle was used to give two injections of equal volume (0·3 ml) into the internal anal sphincter, one on each side of the anterior midline of the sphincter.
Procedure: injection of botulinum toxin
Patients received a 0·6-ml injection of a solution containing 30 units botulinum toxin into the internal anal sphincter
Other Name: botox injection
Placebo Comparator: 2
Patients in the placebo group received a 0·6-ml injection of saline.
A27-G needle was used to give two injections of equal volume (0·3 ml) into the internal anal sphincter, one on each side of the anterior midline of the sphincter.
Procedure: injection of saline
Patients received a 0·6-ml injection of a saline solution into the internal anal sphincter
Other Name: saline injection
