Abstract

Since February 1993 six patients with bladder diverticular have undergone resection of the diverticular neck and fulguration of the diverticular mucosa at the time of transurethral resection of the prostate in 5 cases and urethral dilation in one case. The mean dimension of the diverticula was 5,2 cm. After a mean follow-up of 20 months the diverticulum has largely shrunk in one case and has completely disappeared in 5 cases. Our paper demonstrates the effectiveness of this technique in the treatment of bladder diverticula. In our opinion endoscopic fulguration represents a valid alternative to open surgery for the treatment of small bladder diverticula.
