cystoplasty

Any structural surgical procedure performed on the urinary bladder. Clam augmentation cystoplasty is a complex surgical procedure used to treat the condition of unstable or irritable (hyper-reflexive) bladder. The organ is split into two and then reconstituted using a patch of gut taken from the small intestine. This greatly weakens bladder function and prevents full voiding but is effective in controlling involuntary urination.

During augmentation cystoplasty the bladder is bisected and augmented with a patch of bowel.
The latter is eminently achievable, especially as the alternative method, substitution cystoplasty, uses bowel tissue that adds to the surgical costs.
Surgical procedures such as augmentation cystoplasty are used in many severe and otherwise treatment-resistant cases, (24) especially in cases that involve diminished bladder capacity.
