Overview

Cystectomy is a surgical procedure to remove some or all of the urinary bladder. Most often, this procedure is performed to treat invasive bladder cancer. Sometimes, this procedure is performed for benign disorders affecting the bladder and urinary system.

Types of cystectomy:

Partial Cystectomy (segmental cystectomy): In this type of procedure, only a part of the bladder is removed. Usually, nearby lymph nodes (small bundles of tissue that filter the body’s lymph fluid and produce immune system cells) are removed to determine whether any cancer has spread beyond the bladder. The remaining bladder is repaired and stays in the body.

Radical Cystectomy: In this type of procedure, the entire bladder and nearby lymph nodes are removed that contain cancer.

In men, surgeons almost always cut the vas deferens and remove the prostate and seminal vesicles (part of the male reproductive system).

In women, surgeons often remove the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, cervix, and occasionally part of the vaginal wall.

Symptoms

  • This procedure is performed when the patient is suffering from bladder cancer. Symptoms may be shown for bladder cancer.
  • Birth defects that affect the urinary system.
  • Neurological or inflammatory disorders that affect the urinary system.
