Sažetak
The aim of this prospective study was to analyse the quality of life in patients with blepharospasm grade III and IV and to explore whether Botulinum neurotoxin type A treatment improves their quality of life.We used a WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire, based on the existing WHO recommendation and its meaningful metric characteristics. The study included 37 patients with either grade/type III or IV blepharospasm who were treated with Botulinum neurotoxin Type A. Each patient completed the WHOQOL-BREF questionnaire by themselves just before the Botulinum Neurotoxin Type A (BT-A) therapy application, when the cilinical symptoms of blepharospasm were most manifest and a month and a half after, when the regression of symptoms appeare. Consequently, the application of BT-A resulted in improved changes in terms of quality of life in 3 of the 4 measured fields (psychical and physical health as well as the environmental living conditions).
