ASCASO TIL, H. et al. Recurrent neobladder rupture: conservative management. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2007, vol.31, n.3, pp.279-284. ISSN 0210-4806.

Purpose: To present a case of recurrent neobladder rupture treated in a conservative fashion. To review the articles on conservative management of cases like this one published from 1985. Results: Nineteen articles have been published since 1985 on spontaneous neobladder rupture, 4 of which describe the possibility of a successful conservative management, provided that the patients are carefully selected. Conclusions: Faced to abdominal pain in patients with neobladder, it is essential to suspect spontaneous perforation and, if possible, to confirm such suspicions by means of cystography or CT. An exploratory laparotomy may be necessary in many instances, sometimes due to lack of a diagnosis and sometimes because the patient’s status rules out any other procedure, but in selected and precisely diagnosed cases a conservative management can be resolvent.
