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.
