Botulinum toxin in the treatment of anal fissure

Botulinum toxin and anal fissure
Our new video clip is dedicated to the treatment of anal fissure with botulinum toxin.
BoTox has been used for a few decades in the non-surgical, outpatient treatment of anal fissure. The efficacy is really high, and the side effects are negligible, so much so that it can be said that with BoTox it is possible, in effective terms, to achieve a chemical sphincterotomy comparable to surgical sphincterotomy, which is currently the gold standard in the treatment of anal fissure,but it can have post-surgical complications, such as incontinence, that are not observed with BoTox.
Botulinum toxin: not in the general public
It is worth mentioning, however, that the use of BoTox for the treatment of anal fissure is off label, and therefore not adopted in public health facilities.
