Open cystoplasty is a procedure in which an abnormal bladder is replaced or enlarged using tissue from the stomach or bowel. The surgery is indicated when the bladder is not big enough, or is too stiff and cannot completely expand to hold the normal amount of urine produced by the kidneys. Cystoplasty is performed to treat urine leakage (incontinence) or reflux, where the urine backs up towards the kidneys. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
There are two types of cystoplasty:
Like all surgeries, cystoplasty may be associated with certain complications such as urinary infection, mucus formation, urinary incontinence or inability to empty the new bladder completely.
There are alternate minimally invasive/laparoscopic procedures that can be availed of. The open cystoplasty are restricted to selected cases only. Your surgeon will discuss your options with you based on your particular medical history.
