Summary about Bladder Divertivulae

Marham brings a diverse range of bladder diverticulum doctors in Pakistan, where you can consult the best doctor online. We listed doctors in Pakistan with their immense experience, qualifications, and services.

What is Bladder Diverticulum?

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.

Diagnosis of Bladder Diverticulum disease

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)

Bladder Diverticulum Treatment in Pakistan

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.

Marham provides a platform for online or in-person consultation with the best urologists for the treatment of Bladder Diverticula in Pakistan. 

Symptoms of Bladder Divertivulae

A bladder diverticulum is usually asymptomatic but symptoms may appear in certain cases as the condition worsens. Some of the commonly known symptoms of the disease include;

  • Urinary retention

  • Inability to empty the bladder

  • Blood in urine

  • Painful urination (dysuria)

  • Urinary tract infection

  • Bladder outlet obstructions

  • Bladder stones

  • Abdominal distension

  • Bladder tumor

Causes of Bladder Divertivulae

The bladder diverticulum may be congenital or acquired.

Some of the causes of the acquired disease include;

  • Enlarged prostate

  • Bladder obstruction

  • Neurogenic bladder

  • Scarring of urethra

  • Williams syndrome (a rare genetic disorder)

Risk Factors of Bladder Divertivulae

Most people remain undiagnosed with the disease as it is mostly asymptomatic. However, if the disease progresses with symptoms, there are certain risks associated with it if left untreated;

  • Urinary retention

  • Painful urination

  • Development of infections due to urinary retention in the bladder

  • Development of bladder calculi due to urinary retention

Types of Bladder Divertivulae

Bladder diverticulum (single pouch) or diverticula (multiple pouches) are of the following two types;

  • Congenital bladder diverticulum: This type of bladder pouch is present since birth and may be diagnosed during a prenatal examination

  • Acquired bladder diverticulum: This type of bladder pouch develops later in life particularly due to the obstruction of the bladder outlet which involves incidental diagnosis
