Study design, materials and methods
141/183 consecutive patients attending for their 1st injection of Onabotox A under our care between 2006 and 2015 had full data available on retrospective notes review. Data analysed were patient demographics, aetiology, dose of Onabotox A, 5 point Likert Patient Global Impression of Improvement score (PGII) where 5 is much improved and 3 is no change, need to ISC, choice for repeat Onabotox A injection(s) and number of repeat injections.
Statistical analysis of parametric data was by Student’s T Test and of non parametric data was by Mann Whitney U Test. Significance was assigned at < 0.05
Interpretation of results
73% OAB and 78% of NDO patients are improved or very much improved after Onabotox A injections, 92-100% of whom elect for repeat treatments. ISC is required in 45-70% of patients.
