Interstitial cystitis, treated by prolonged bladder distension.

Abstract

25 patients with interstitial cystitis were treated by prolonged bladder distension. 16 patients are symptom-free, but 5 of these have had 1 or more previous prolonged bladder distensions. 6 patients are improved, whilst 3 remain symptomatically unchanged. Prolonged bladder distension can be repeated successfully when symptoms return. These results suggest that prolonged bladder distension has a place in the treatment of interstitial cystitis.
