Bladder pain syndrome: contemporary management and future strategies

Cystoscopy after bladder hydrodistension may show glomerulations (red petechiae on the urothelium) and/or bladder ulceration (Hunner's ulcer) in around 10–15%.

Cystoscopy and bladder biopsies in patients with bladder pain syndrome carried out following ESSIC guidelines

Correlations between cystoscopic findings, maximal bladder capacity and bladder histology were found and the use of the ESSIC methodology permits a standardized investigation with results that can be compared between patients.

Pelvic pain in urogynecology. Part II: treatment options in patients with lower urinary tract symptoms

Although some treatment options show promising results in the treatment of pelvic pain in patients with LUTS, more randomised controlled trials are needed to confirm these results.

Current definitions and diagnostic tools along with pitfalls during the assessment of pelvic pain will be discussed and currently available treatment options will be presented together with an up to date review of the literature.

Bladder Pain Syndrome: Where Do We Stand Now?

Bladder pain syndrome is one of the most challenging urological disorders to diagnose and manage and optimal therapy may involve multiple simultaneous treatments.

Cystodistension versus cystoscopy in patients with refractory detrusor overactivity: a randomized controlled trial

Cystoscopy produces some short-term improvement in bladder symptoms, but cystodistension does not, and no clinically therapeutic benefit was maintained by either procedure at 6 months.
