Bladder Dysfunction

Interstitial Cystitis

Interstitial cystitis (IC) is an observed pattern in which a person feels the need to urinate frequently and suffers discomfort in the pelvic region, the cause of which is unknown. Despite all of the advancements in medicine, IC is a mystery because of its unknown cause and undefined treatment. Medical experts have performed exhaustive research in an effort to determine the cause of IC. Treatments are somewhat subjective and their success rate is disappointing. Despite this predicament, surgery is normally not an option.

Bladder Trauma

Some type of significant force causes bladder injuries. A bladder that is stretched is more likely to be injured. As a result, a full bladder is more susceptible to injury than one that is empty. With advancements in medical technology and with a prompt and accurate diagnosis, bladder trauma can be treated successfully. This wasn’t the case in the past, when bladder trauma normally resulted in death. In order to treat bladder trauma effectively, doctors need to discover it early, determine the cause and effect of the condition through investigation and operate immediately, if necessary.

Bladder Anomalies Pediatrics

This article looks at some of the more common bladder abnormalities, such as bladder diverticula. It also delves into some of the less common bladder abnormalities, like bladder ears, congenital hypoplasia of the bladder, megacystis, bladder agenesis, duplication abnormalities of the bladder and bladder septa. There is also a discussion of urachal anomalies like urachal sinus, urachal cyst, urachal diverticulum and patent urachus.

Neurogenic Bladder

The bladder is designed to hold and release urine in a regulated manner. A body’s nervous systems – both main and external – control the normal function of the bladder. A bladder that does not perform its daily functions properly is known as a neurogenic bladder. The cause of a neurogenic bladder can result from a forceful blow, accident, injury or disease.
