BOTOX And Deflux Injections

  • Botox injections are well known for various cosmetic procedures. However they can also be used to treat severe bladder symptoms such as the urgency to urinate causing inability to delay urination and urinary sphincter spasm. Botox has the ability to block the nerves that communicate with the urinary bladder or sphincter muscles. Botox is particularly used to medical conditions that are not responsive to other medications or traditional therapies.

  • Deflux is a sugar-based medicine. It is used to treat Vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR). VUR occurs when the urine flows backward into the ureters towards the kidneys from the bladder

BOTOX and Deflux Injections (Brief)

Botox Injections

Botoxinjections are well known for various cosmetic procedures. However they can also be used to treat severe bladder symptoms such as the urgency to urinate causing inability to delay urination and urinary sphincter spasm. Botox has the ability to block the nerves that communicate with the urinary bladder or sphincter muscles. Botox is particularly used to medical conditions that are not responsive to other medications or traditional therapies.

The Procedure:

It is an outpatient procedure and may be performed under a local or general anesthesia. While treating patients with urinary incontinence, a cystoscope (small telescope) is used to check the inside of the bladder and the bladder wall is injected 100 - 300 units of Botox. Botox usually takes 7 days to work after the procedure, post which the patients see improvements in their urinary symptoms and are able to hold urine for longer intervals. The effects of Botox last between 6 - 9 months, post which the procedure needs to be done again.

Deflux Injections
Deflux Injections to treat Vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR)

-Deflux is a sugar-based medicine. It is used to treat Vesico-ureteric reflux (VUR). VUR occurs when the urine flows backward into the ureters towards the kidneys from the bladder. It can at times go as far as the kidneys and infect the kidneys or damage them. Deflux Injections can block the urine from flowing back up the ureters from the urinary bladder. It is injected at the site of VUR, where the ureters open into the bladder through a small telescope.

Deflux Injections to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI)

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is referred to a condition that occurs when the muscles that control the release of urine (urinary sphincter) and the muscles and tissues (pelvic floor muscles) that support the bladder weaken. Pelvic floor muscles weaken due to childbirth or prostate surgery. A person suffering with SUI has unintentional loss of urine while doing any physical movement or activities such as coughing, sneezing, running etc. Any such activities that put pressure (stress) on the bladder can lead to urinary leakage. Deflux Injection aims to strengthen the sides of the urethra, so that they close with more force thereby preventing urinary leakage.

The testis prosthesis is an outpatient 30-60 minutes procedure done under an anesthesia. Through a small incision made either in the scrotum or in the groin, the implant is placed. The incision is then closed. Patients are required to take oral antibiotics for a few days and follow up with the surgeon for next 3 months.
