Thread: Botox & the Incidence of Diverticula

    Botox & the Incidence of Diverticula

    Does anyone have any personal experience, or is anyone aware of any research, indicating the worsening of diverticula when botox is used to treat a neurogenic bladder? It seems likely that an increase in bladder capacity (within the normal range) in a less elastic bladder would result in potentially harmful pressures, and subsequent diverticula. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    I have seen no studies showing that either diverticuli nor trabeculation is more common after Botox use. Both are indications of a bladder that is contracting with high pressures. Botox paralyzes the bladder, increasing compliance (stretchability) and lowering pressures.
