Bladder diverticula disease is the formation of a pouch or sac that protrudes out from the urinary bladder wall. The individuals may be born with this condition or it may develop later in life. The patients diagnosed with bladder diverticula may have one or more than one pouches or pockets formed in their bladder. The disease requires no treatment in the majority of the cases as it is an asymptomatic disease however, treatment in Pakistan is given by the best urologists if the symptoms appear.
Bladder diverticulum may be diagnosed incidentally during diagnosis of the other disease or involves specific diagnostic tests. They include;
CT scan or Ultrasound
Cytogram (bladder X-ray with a dye)
Cystoscopy (to look inside the bladder using the camera)
Acquired or congenital bladder diverticulum does not necessarily require any treatment unless they are associated with bladder obstruction, tumor, or recurrent urinary tract infections.
The treatment involves removing the obstruction of the bladder using open or closed laparoscopic surgery. A catheter may be needed for a week or 2 following the surgery to drain the bladder.
