Cytoscopy Print

Cytoscopy represents a diagnostic method allowing a detailed visualization of urethra and the urinary bladder’s interior surface using a specialized endoscope (a tube with a small camera) used for diagnostic or curative reasons, and called a cystoscope.

The cystoscopy is used to:
- diagnose and evaluate the urinary tract pathologies
- examine for urethral or urinary bladder cancer
- diagnose prostate adenoma
- determine the cause of pain during urination
- diagnose recurrent urinary bladder infections.

The cystoscope facilitates the diagnostic of:
- prostate pathologies (prostate adenoma, prostate obstruction, hemorrhages)
- cysts
- urethral masses
- calculi
- tumors
- polyps
- diverticula
- ulcers
- urinary bladder wall decompression
- congenital abnormalities
- chronic urethritis
- irritable urinary bladder
- urethral and urinary bladder traumas

Te possible complications of cystoscopy are:
- infection
- excessive hemorrhage (after biopsy)
- urinary bladder wall perforation (with the cystoscope or during biopsy)

There are two types of cystoscopes: standard rigid cystoscope and flexible cystoscope. Despite the differences in the techniques of cystoscope application, the tests performed with their help are identical.
