Bladder Augmentation, Urinary Diversion and Cystectomy in Patients with Bladder Pain Syndrome



Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS) is a disabling disease of the urinary bladder mainly affecting women. It is of unknown aetiology and might appear in all ages. The main symptoms of bladder pain and urinary frequency might completely govern the life of the unlucky person suffering from the disease. Treatment includes diet, behavioural modifications, medical treatments, inclusive specific pain treatment and surgery but is unfortunately often insufficient.

Surgical treatments include neuromodulation, transurethral surgery, bladder augmentation and urinary diversion with or without cystectomy. This chapter looks into the documentation or lack of same for the often drastic major surgical procedures performed to improve the quality of life in patients with BPS.
