Electron microscopic investigation of the bladder urothelium and glycocalyx in patients with interstitial cystitis.

Abstract

The electron microscopic appearance of the bladder urothelium and glycocalyx was investigated in ten patients with well defined interstitial cystitis and compared to the findings in ten control patients with stress incontinence as the only symptom. Ruthenium red, a polycationic dye which binds specifically to cell surface acid polysaccharides, was used to… (More)
