To assess the impact of multiple (two or more) bladder hydrodistentions (HODs) on anesthetic BC in a large cohort of IC/BPS patients. Urinary bladder hydrodistention (HOD) under anesthesia is a third line therapeutic approach used to treat patients with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). There is some concern that performing multiple therapeutic HODs may be contraindicated due to the potential for contributing to a diminished bladder capacity (BC) over time.

Low anesthetic bladder capacity has been shown to be a biomarker for bladder-centric interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS). The goal of this study was to determine if histopathological ...
Bladder cancer is a significant health issue across the United States of America (USA). Evidence of unequal distribution of a disease or condition's incidence and mortality would suggest that importan...

Urinary tract endometriosis (UTE) involves the bladder and/or the ureters. UTE is present in approximately 1% of women with endometriosis (1). Bladder endometriosis is the most frequent type of UTE, o...
The aim of this was to examine the effect of bladder training on bladder functions.
The specific aim of this trial is to determine if hydrodistention at the time of intradetrusor injection of botulinum toxin A has additional benefit in patients with refractory overactive ...
Interstitial cystitis/Painful bladder syndrome (IC/PBS) is a chronic debilitating condition that severely impacts between 2.7 and 6.5 percent of women in the United States. Despite its pub...

Radical radiotherapy to the prostate is conventionally treated with a full bladder with the aim of minimising dose to the bladder and small bowel to prevent significant side effects. Toler...
Purpose To measure the impedance of the bladder during the urodynamic study to see if changes in the impedance value occur as the bladder volume changes in pediatric patients aged 5-12 yea...
Involuntary discharge of URINE as a result of physical activities that increase abdominal pressure on the URINARY BLADDER without detrusor contraction or overdistended bladder. The subtypes are classified by the degree of leakage, descent and opening of the bladder neck and URETHRA without bladder contraction, and sphincter deficiency.
A HERNIA-like condition in which the weakened pelvic muscles cause the URINARY BLADDER to drop from its normal position. Fallen urinary bladder is more common in females with the bladder dropping into the VAGINA and less common in males with the bladder dropping into the SCROTUM.
An abnormal passage in the URINARY BLADDER or between the bladder and any surrounding organ.
Blocked urine flow through the bladder neck, the narrow internal urethral opening at the base of the URINARY BLADDER. Narrowing or strictures of the URETHRA can be congenital or acquired. It is often observed in males with enlarged PROSTATE glands.
A birth defect in which the URINARY BLADDER is malformed and exposed, inside out, and protruded through the ABDOMINAL WALL. It is caused by closure defects involving the top front surface of the bladder, as well as the lower abdominal wall; SKIN; MUSCLES; and the pubic bone.
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
