The aim of this study was to identify structural and functional brain changes that accompanied the transition from chronic (CM; ≥15 headache days/month) to episodic (EM; <15 headache days/month) migraine following prophylactic treatment with onabotulinumtoxinA (BoNT-A). Specifically, we examined whether CM patients responsive to prophylaxis (responders; n = 11), as evidenced by a reversal in disease status (defined by at least a 50% reduction in migraine frequency and <15 headache days/month), compared to CM patients whose migraine frequency remained unchanged (non-responders; n = 12), showed differences in cortical thickness using surface-based morphometry. We also investigated whether areas showing group differences in cortical thickness displayed altered resting-state functional connectivity (RS-FC) using seed-to-voxel analyses. Migraine characteristics measured across groups included disease duration, pain intensity and headache frequency. Patient reports of headache frequency over the 4 weeks prior to (pre-treatment) and following (post-treatment) prophylaxis were compared (post minus pre) and this measure served as the clinical endpoint that determined group assignment. All patients were scanned within 2 weeks of the post-treatment visit. Results revealed that responders showed significant cortical thickening in the right primary somatosensory cortex (SI) and anterior insula (aINS), and left superior temporal gyrus (STG) and pars opercularis (ParsOp) compared to non-responders. In addition, disease duration was negatively correlated with cortical thickness in fronto-parietal and temporo-occipital regions in responders but not non-responders, with the exception of the primary motor cortex (MI) that showed the opposite pattern; disease duration was positively associated with MI cortical thickness in responders versus non-responders. Our seed-based RS-FC analyses revealed anti-correlations between the SI seed and lateral occipital (LOC) and dorsomedial prefrontal cortices (DMPFC) in responders, whereas non-responders showed increased connectivity between the ParsOp seed and LOC. Overall, our findings revealed distinct morphometric and functional brain changes in CM patients that reverted to EM following prophylactic treatment compared to CM patients that showed no change in disease status. Elucidating the CNS changes involved in disease reversal may be critical to discovering interventions that prevent or slow the progression of CM. Such changes may aid in the evaluation of treatments as well as provide markers for disease "de-chronification".

Application of Botox A in myocutaneous flap expansion can make the muscle atrophy and reduce the content of collagen in capsule layer, making the myocutaneous flap thinner which is suitable for reconstruction in face and neck.

Multiple etiological factors including gastroesophageal reflux, hyperfunctional voice use, and endotracheal intubation have been implicated in the development of posterior laryngeal ulcers and granulomas. The optimal approach to treatment of these lesions remains controversial. The mainstay of treatment at Vancouver General Hospital has been aggressive medical management of gastroesophageal reflux, with complimentary voice therapy offered to patients suspected of having significant hyperfunctional phonation. The authors reserve Botulinum toxin injection or surgical excision for patients who fail initial therapy. They conducted a retrospective analysis of their voice clinic records from 1985-1997 to examine the efficacy of this approach. They identified 76 patients with the diagnosis of contact ulcer or granuloma. Fifty-two patients had follow-up data available for review. Ninety-four percent of patients were treated nonsurgically: 35 patients were treated solely by dietary and medical therapy to control gastroesophageal reflux, 10 patients were treated by a combination of medical gastroesophageal reflux control and voice therapy, 3 patients had Botox injections, 2 patients had surgical excision of granuloma, 1 patient had a Kenalog injection, and 1 patient underwent laparoscopic fundoplication. Overall, 77% of patients had complete resolution, whereas 11% had partial resolution and another 11% had no significant improvement. The data supports control of gastroesophageal reflux as a central component in treatment of posterior laryngeal ulcers and granulomas.

A multicentre, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial enrolled 320 patients who exhibited persistent, bilateral, primary axillary hyperhidrosis sufficient to interfere with daily activities. These patients were treated with either 50 U BTX-A (Botox, Allergan, Inc., Irvine, CA, U.S.A.) or placebo in each axilla. QOL was assessed using the Hyperhidrosis Impact Questionnaire (HHIQ) at baseline and 1, 4, 8, 12 and 16 weeks post-treatment, as well as the Medical Outcomes Trust Short Form-12 Health Survey(SF-12) at baseline and 16 weeks post-treatment.

The aims of this study were to assess the efficacy and safety of botulinum toxin (BoTox) injection in the cricopharyngeus muscle (CP) and CP myotomy in patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia (OPD) and to identify factors predicting the outcome of these treatments. The study involved patients with persistent OPD despite 2-6 months of rehabilitation, who all underwent clinical evaluation, esophageal manometry, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, and videofluoroscopy (VFS). Patients received 5-10 BoTox units injections in the CP, identified by electromyography. Surgical myotomy of the upper esophageal sphincter was performed when dysphagia persisted after two BoTox injections. After treatment, patients were reevaluated with clinical interviews and VFS. The study population included 21 patients (15 mean and 6 women; median age, 68 years), classified into three groups, based on the etiology of their OPD: eight (38%) had central nervous system abnormalities, five (24%) had peripheral nerve disease, and eight (38%) were classified as idiopathic. The median time since the onset of dysphagia was 18 months. Thirteen of 21 patients (62%) needed supplemental/total gastrostomy feeding, and 5 of 21 (24%) had tracheostomy. One patient died, on posttreatment day 7, due to massive aspiration. No other BoTox-related complications were observed. After BoTox injection, dysphagia improved in 9 of 21 (43%) patients. Severely altered VFS findings and CP incoordination or low activity predicted BoTox failure at multivariate analysis. Dysphagia improved in 8 of 11 (72.7%) patients who failed to respond to BoTox and underwent myotomy. A mild impairment of VFS findings and a higher pressure of pharyngeal contractions best predicted response to BoTox with or without myotomy. BoTox injection can be used as the first therapeutic option in patients with OPD: it is safe and simple and relieves dysphagia in 43% of cases. If BoTox fails, CP myotomy can be offered to patients with preserved oral and tongue activity at VFS and an intact bolus propulsion ability on manometry.
This paper explores the gaps in public information pertaining to onabotulinumtoxinA (Botox/Botox Cosmetic), a treatment option for patients whereby nurses may serve as assistants, direct care providers, patient educators, and researchers. Nurses play an important role in Botox/Botox Cosmetic administration and it remains imperative that they protect the public by clarifying information on Food and Drug Administration approved and unapproved uses. The debate is still pending on whether there are potential positive or negative long-term effects. The pathophysiology and international use of botulinum toxin are discussed, as are the reasons to seek treatment from medically qualified professionals.
