Modern Urological treatment

There is no promising treatment for Interstitial cystitis. Different treatments are used in different combinations.

Conservative treatment:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Oral medications
    – Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
    – Tricyclic antidepressants, such as amitriptyline or imipramine relax your bladder and block pain.
    – Antihistamines – may reduce urinary urgency and frequency
    – Pentosan polysulfate sodium – may reconstruct the inner skin of the bladder i.e. urothelium
  • Nerve stimulation
    – Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
    – Sacral nerve stimulation
  • Hydro-distention of Bladder
  • Intra-vesical cocktail therapy (Instillation of medications into the bladder through a small tube)

Surgical Treatment:

  • Fulguration
  • Resection
  • Augmented cystoplasty (Ileo-cystoplasty, Caeco-cystoplasty or Colo-cystoplasty)
