Abstract

Objective: In the absence of national or international guidelines, physician approaches to administer botulinum toxin (BTX) injections in patients on an anticoagulant therapy may be variable. We aimed to document the preferences and attitudes of physicians for controlling the bleeding risk of BTX injections in anticoagulated patients.
