Pain and Intensity Of Post-stroke Spasticity Decreased by Botox Treatment

ssociation.

A total of 279 patients were enrolled in the 12-month study of BoNTA to evaluate the efficacy and safety of repeated BoNTA treatments. All study participants received up to five treatments of BoNTA. For the study, the BoNTA injections were given at the elbow, wrist and fingers and/or thumbs flexor of the affected limb to block overactive nerve impulses that trigger excessive muscle contractions. Patients were assessed every six weeks for one year. Patients demonstrated a significant reduction in pain and excessive muscle tone at each follow-up. In addition, average pain intensity was significantly reduced.

Early intervention with effective therapies is absolutely vital to prevent the profound disability that afflicts many stroke patients, said Brashear. Having data to support a safe and effective profile for long-term treatment with BoNTA is significant for patients and caregivers. Many oral anti-spasticity medications are associated with systemic side effects such as sedation, mental confusion, dizziness and muscle weakness, all of which can seriously hinder rehabilitation after a stroke.
