NAVALON VERDEJO, Pedro et al. Orthotopic bladder substitution in the treatment of interstitial cystitis. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2005, vol.58, n.7, pp.605-610. ISSN 0004-0614.

OBJECTIVES: To point out the efficacy of supra trigonal cystectomy with orthotopic substitution iliocystoplasty in the treatment of advanced interstitial cystitis (IC). METHODS: We study the results obtained in four women suffering IC nonrespondent to conservative treatment who underwent the procedure. All patients comply with classic diagnostic criteria of IC, presenting long-lasting symptoms, between 4 and 8 years (mean 5.6), and voiding frequency of near one-hour day and night. RESULTS: Mean postoperative follow-up was 32 months (18 to 56); post operative evaluation included clinical evaluation, ultrasound, urodynamic studies, and radiological tests. Suprapubic pain disappeared in all cases, as well as pre-op lower urinary tract symptoms, with good control of urinary frequency day and night being evident in the immediate postoperative period. All patients referred high satisfaction with the outcome. CONCLUSIONS: When conservative treatment fails, supratrigonal cystectomy with orthotopic neobladder substitution is a valid therapeutic option in IC patients who comply with classic diagnostic criteria.
