Cystoscopy Treatment and Procedure in Miyapur
Cystoscopy is a procedure that allows you to examine the lining of your bladder and the tube that carries urine out of your body (urethra). A hollow tube (cystoscope) equipped with a lens is inserted into your urethra and slowly advanced into your bladder.
Treatments using cystoscopy
Our doctor may also use a cystoscope to:
- Get urine samples from ureters (the ducts that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder).
- Inject dye for an X-ray procedure that tracks urine flow.
- Inject medication to stop urine leakage.
- Remove a ureteral stent (a tiny tube that holds open a ureter) placed during an earlier procedure.
- Remove bladder stones, abnormal tissue, polyps, or tumors.
- Take small pieces of bladder or urethral tissue to biopsy (examine in a lab).
- Treat urethral strictures (narrowing) or fistulas (holes that form between two areas).
What are the types of cystoscopies?
There are two types of cystoscopes. Our experts will use the one that works best for your specific procedure.
- Rigid: These cystoscopes don’t bend. our doctor may pass instruments through the tube to perform biopsies or remove tumors.
- Flexible: our doctor may use a bendable scope to examine the inside of the bladder and urethra and make a diagnosis.
