Botox intravesical injections and bulking agent injections have been shown to help when dealing with overactive bladder and other bladder issues.

Bladder issues such as overactive bladder syndrome, or OAB, cause many problems for patients such as urinary incontinence, frequency of urination, and constantly having to get up at night to urinate. Injections are normally performed in-office and have a short recovery time.

  • Overall bladder issues affect many patients.
  • Studies have shown that using bulking agents and Botox intravesical injections can be cost effective and have a longer lasting effect than other therapies.

Botox Intravesical Injections

This type of injection uses the commonly know toxin, botulinum toxin, which is used for many medical approaches and has proven effective to treat different medical conditions. This injection is used to help patients suffering from OAB, because when injected, it will paralyze the bladder muscles and will relieve symptoms. The best candidates for these injections are patients suffering from more severe forms of OAB. Also, patients who have not seen any significant change from other therapies are also candidates for the injection.

Results are not seen immediately, but begin around 7 to 10 days after injection. Depending on the amount injected, effects can last from 6 to 12 months, and in some cases even longer.


Bulking Agent Injections

Stress urinary incontinence, or SUI, is a condition that causes unwanted urination due to pressure in the abdomen. This and other types of disorders not only affect quality of life, but can be expensive for the patient. Having to buy disposable products to manage symptoms can be costly over time.

The use of the bulking agent injection is to strengthen the urethra so that unwanted effects caused by SUI are lessened. This injection is for patients who suffer from conditions such as stress incontinence. Studies have shown that this injection is useful for many different age ranges. Bulking agents have a long history of use in the field of urology and have shown success. Bulking agents may also be used in combination with other therapies to maximize its effectiveness.
