Partial Bladder Denervation in the Treatment of Interstitial Cystitis in Women
Denervation in cases of interstitial cystitis has been performed in various ways. Extended resections of the external layers of bladder wall have been attempted. Overdistension of the bladder can at least temporarily defunctionalize the nerves in the bladder wall, and a temporary effect can be achieved by transurethral injections of phenol solutions beneath the bladder base.
