Cystoscopy

Indication

Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy (from the Greek: zyst = bladder, skopein = view) is an examination during which the physician examines the urinary bladder with a special endoscope (cystoscope). In men, the area in which the prostate is located is examined in addition to the urinary bladder and the urethra (urethrocystoscopy). Despite all of the advancements in imaging techniques, e.g. ultrasound and radiography, it is still necessary to perform a cystoscopy in the case of certain conditions.

Catheterization

Indication

Catheterization

Catheterization is understood to mean the insertion of a catheter into the urinary bladder via the urethra. Catheterization may be required for the following reasons:

  • Emptying the bladder in cases of urinary retention (voiding dysfunction)
  • Flushing or irrigating the bladder
  • Administering medications (e.g. local chemotherapy)
  • Bladder function examination
  • Urine drainage following surgery
  • Urine drainage in cases of pronounced inflammations of the urinary organs

Wound healing

How can the wound healing process be actively supported?


In principle, the healing process for injuries to the urethral mucosa is similar to that for skin wounds on the surface of the body. In the treatment of superficial wounds, moist wound care has proven superior to dry wound care.


DRY WOUND CARE

In dry wound care, the formation of a scab delays wound closure.

MOIST WOUND CARE

In moist wound care, the absorption of wound exudate and the absence of scab formation enables rapid wound closure and reduces the risk of scarring.

Further information

Indication — Cystoscopy

Cystoscopy (from the Greek: zyst = bladder, skopein = view) is an examination during which the physician examines the urinary bladder with a special endoscope (cystoscope). In men, the area in which the prostate is located is examined in addition to the urinary bladder and the urethra (urethrocystoscopy). Despite all of the advancements in imaging techniques, e.g. ultrasound and radiography, it is still necessary to perform a cystoscopy in the case of certain conditions.

REASONS FOR A CYSTOSCOPY

Numerous urinary tract conditions may require a cystoscopy in order to confirm a diagnosis. Such conditions include blood in the urine, recurrent infections of the urinary bladder, bladder tumors, micturition disorders, and urinary stones. In some cases, treatment may also be performed during cystoscopy.

Indication — Treatment of urethral strictures

Urethral strictures are when the urethra becomes constricted due to scarring. The appropriate treatment method is selected based on the location and length of the stricture/scar.

TREATMENT METHODS

DILATION —
Dilation (long-term dilation) is the oldest and most straightforward method. In this procedure, the constriction in the urethra is dilated using special urethral catheters known as bougie à boule instruments. The treatment is performed by the urologist, but can also be continued by the patient at home following instruction. As the procedure causes tiny injuries in the region of the constriction, which can in turn lead to scarring, dilation of the scarred urethra is often only effective for a limited period of time.

URETHRAL INCISION —
In this endoscopic procedure, the scarred constriction of the urethra is cut. In order to perform a urethral incision, the patient is either put under general anesthesia or local anesthesia of the spinal cord. A targeted incision allows the urine to flow without obstruction again. An indwelling catheter is then inserted for a few days.

Indication — Catheterization

Catheterization is understood to mean the insertion of a catheter into the urinary bladder via the urethra. Catheterization may be required for the following reasons:

  • Emptying the bladder in cases of urinary retention (voiding dysfunction)
  • Flushing or irrigating the bladder
  • Administering medications (e.g. local chemotherapy)
  • Bladder function examination
  • Urine drainage following surgery
  • Urine drainage in cases of pronounced inflammations of the urinary organs

WHAT SORTS OF CATHETERS ARE THERE?

SINGLE-USE CATHETERS —
are narrow plastic tubes that are inserted into the urinary bladder and immediately removed following completion of the necessary measure. Single-use catheters are usually placed by the patients themselves (intermittent self-catheterization).

INDWELLING CATHETERS —
have an inflatable balloon at the tip that prevents the catheter from coming out. Indwelling catheters remain in the bladder for prolonged periods in order to drain the urine, e.g. following surgery or in the case of urinary retention. Indwelling catheters are usually placed and changed regularly by nursing professionals.

MEASURING CATHETERS —
have multiple fine internal channels to measure the pressure in the bladder and urethra. These enable important diagnostic information to be obtained concerning a bladder disorder. Measuring catheters are removed following the examination.
