Bladder botox could help treat incontinence
Washington: England's drugs watchdog has said that botox injections can now be offered as a treatment for urinary incontinence.
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) said that women with 'overactive bladder syndrome,' who have not responded to recommended lifestyle changes, should be offered the injections, the BBC reported.
Botox treatment is believed to help dampen chemical messages that a person's bladder uses to tell the brain that they need to urinate.
The injections are administered directly to the bladder wall via a small device that has been inserted into the urethra.
