BTX-Therapy

In spasmodic dysphonia we offer transnasal intralaryngeal injections, very much preferred over percutaneous injections by most of our patients. After thousands injections we can offer highest Expertise.

BTX is a well known therapeutic agent. When dosage and injection techniques are adequate, it can modulate muscle activity in a supportive way.

With extremely small cannulas and under EMG control small and effective injections can be performed without sedation in a few minutes enabling voicing with less effort.

In special workshops we train medical colleagues how to perform and improve injections for the best of patient care.

Advantages:

  • Ambulatory injections
  • No sedation required
  • Injection via transnasal endoscopy (recommended)
  • Percutaneous injection
  • Highest expertise
  • Safe and effective
  • Gentle intervention
  • Combined with EMG

Indications:

  • Spasmodic dysphonia
  • Focal Dystonia
  • Hyperfunctional dysphonia
  • Chronic cough
  • Bruxism
  • Tourette-Syndrom
  • Feminization treatment (postoperative)

BTX is injected into muscles and leads to temporary muscle relaxation. For medical indications, we inject botulinum toxin with very thin cannulas, comparable to acupuncture needles, into the overly activated and tense muscles. Precision in placements of the botulinum toxin is facilitated by using electromyography (EMG). Smallest amounts – drops! – are applied and usually have an effect lasting for three more months, which is very favorable for patients who are not able to control muscle tension with other therapeutic measures.

Injections are performed transcutaneous and take only a few minutes. Indications in our field are spasmodic dysphonia (syn. for focal dystonia), however other indications are also within the field of our therapy such as cervical dystonia, bruxism, dysphagia, muscle tension dysphonia (only in severe cases), and most recently also in chronic sensory cough.
