Surgery of the Urinary Bladder

Chapter 80 Surgery of the Urinary Bladder

Cystotomy is the most common surgical procedure of the urinary bladder in small animals and is commonly performed for removal of urinary calculi. Subtotal or total cystectomy may be indicated for management of benign or malignant urinary bladder neoplasia. The incised bladder wall heals quickly and regains nearly 100% of original tissue strength after healing. The mucosal lining of the bladder is quite delicate and easily becomes edematous, necessitating meticulous tissue handling and proper suture placement.
