The objective of this study was to observe the effect of medical cannabis in benign essential blepharospasm (BEB) as an adjunct to botulinum toxin. A retrospective chart review was performed on patients certified for medical cannabis use for BEB from September 2015 to May 2016. Patient demographics and responses, cannabis history, and severity indices were collected. Ten patients were certified for medical cannabis use. Five met the inclusion criteria, which was any patient with a diagnosis of BEB receiving standard botulinum toxin treatment who had started medical cannabis treatment by a registered distributor within the state, and was contactable by phone...

BACKGROUND: Improved walking is one of the highest priorities in people living with stroke. Post-stroke lower limb spasticity (PSLLS) impedes walking and quality of life (QOL). The understanding of the evidence of improved walking and QOL following botulinum toxin (BoNTA) injection is not clear. We performed a systematic review of the randomized control trials (RCT) to evaluate the effectiveness of BoNTA injection on walking and QOL in PSLLS. METHODS: We searched PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, CINAHL, ProQuest Thesis and Dissertation checks, Google Scholar, WHO International Clinical Trial Registry Platform, ClinicalTrials...

BACKGROUND: Botulinum toxin A (BTX-A) has been used to reduce spasticity in children with cerebral palsy (CP) for decades. The purpose of this study was to analyze to what extent BTX-A treatment was used to treat spasticity in a total population of children with CP. We investigated 1) the use of BTX-A in relation to age, sex, and Gross Motor Function Classification System (GMFCS) level, 2) the most common muscle groups treated with BTX-A in relation to the same variables, and 3) changes in the proportions of children treated with BTX-A between two time points (2010 and 2015)...

BACKGROUND: Cerebral palsy is a group of movement and posture development disorders. 90% of this population has gait impairment, often due to the presence of spasticity. A number of studies emphasize the importance of combined physical therapy with botulinum toxin A treatment. However, no consensus can be reached concerning the content of the physiotherapy programme after treatment with botulinum toxin A. AIM: The purpose of the present study was to investigate, through a systematic review of the literature, the effects of physiotherapeutic intervention on gait after botulinum toxin application in children with cerebral palsy...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the main reasons of death and disability in children and adolescents in Russia and abroad. Spasticity is a frequent outcome of the TBI that influences on the rehabilitation prognosis, degree of movement disorders and quality of life after trauma. Early spasticity correction and complex rehabilitation lead to the optimal recovery and prevent secondary complications. This review presents the current data about the prognostic role of the spasticity in children after TBI, methods of its correction and their scientific evidence...

BACKGROUND: Skeletal muscle spasticity is a major physical complication resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI), which can lead to muscle contracture, joint stiffness, reduced range of movement, broken skin and pain. Treatments for spasticity include a range of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, often used in combination. Management of spasticity following TBI varies from other clinical populations because of the added complexity of behavioural and cognitive issues associated with TBI...

The tibialis posterior muscle is a frequent target for injection of botulinum toxin during the management of spastic equinovarus foot in adults with post-stroke spasticity. Although it is deep-seated, the needle insertion into the tibialis posterior muscle is usually performed using anatomical landmarks and safety information obtained from healthy subjects and cadavers. Our aim was to evaluate the botulinum toxin injection site for the medial approach to the tibialis posterior muscle in chronic stroke patients with spastic equinovarus foot...

Tissue related ankle hyper-resistance has been reported to contribute to equinus gait in children with spastic cerebral palsy. Hence, ankle plantarflexor stretching programs have been developed in order to restore passive ankle dorsiflexion. Despite high quality evidence on the limited effects of stretching on passive joint mobility, further muscle-tendon adaptations have been reported which may impact gait performance. As such, children with spastic cerebral palsy subject to long-term manual static stretching achieved dorsiflexion gains through the reduction of muscle and fascicle strain whilst preserving tendon strain, and prolonged use of ankle-foot orthoses achieved similar dorsiflexion gains through increased tendon strain whilst preserving muscle and fascicle strain...

Background: Muscle activity contributes to the enhancement of facial aging deformity, blepharospasm, cerebral palsy spasticity, trismus, torticollis, and other conditions. Myotomy of the involved muscles in order to reduce the deformity has variable success rates due to muscle healing and regeneration of activity. Objectives: The goal of this study was to investigate whether blocking striated muscle activity with Botulinum toxin (BtxA) during the healing time after myotomy alters the healing process and reduces long-term muscle activity...

When used therapeutically, botulinum toxin (BT) has to be injected into its target tissues. All manufacturers warn not to do so in patients with oral anticoagulation to avoid haematoma. We wanted to study the haematoma frequency (HF) in patients with anticoagulation receiving BT therapy. 32 patients (16 females, 16 males, age 69.3 ± 10.0 years) with blepharospasm (n = 6), hemifacial spasm (n = 8), post-stroke spasticity (n = 16), and cervical dystonia (n = 2) received BT therapy (needle size 27G, post-injection tissue compression) whilst on anticoagulation (anticoagulation group, AG)...

No recommended guidelines currently exist for the therapeutic concentration or dose of botulinum toxin type A (BTXA) injected into the muscle to treat limb spasticity. Therefore, in this randomized controlled trial, we explored the safety and efficacy of two concentrations and two doses of BTXA in the treatment of spastic foot after stroke to optimize this treatment in these patients. Eligible patients (n = 104) were randomized into four groups. The triceps surae and tibialis posterior on the affected side were injected with BTXA at one of two doses (200 U or 400 U) and two concentrations (50 U/mL or 100 U/mL)...

Spasticity is a complex pathology, both in terms of assessment and treatment. This article focuses on the clinical examination (objective, capacity, performance and function), which is key for choosing a treatment and can be helped by botulinum toxin injections. The treatment involves physical therapy, occupational therapy, medications and surgery. Neurectomy has been used in the upper limb since 1912 and is one of the therapeutic options for spasticity. This treatment is usually reserved for nonfunctional hands...

A Straube
Botulinum toxin has been known in medical history for a long time. The first scientific investigations and thoughts on possible indications in the treatment of muscular disorders were published by the German physician and poet Justinus Kerner in 1822. The physiological effect of botulinum toxin was identified in the middle of the twentieth century and the first clinical use was reported in 1977. It was first used in ophthalmology for the correction of strabismus and some years later the therapy of blepharospasm and cervical dystonia was established...
