Local intravesical instillation therapy of IC/BPS (present and future)
Presenters: Dr. Dick Janssen and Dr. Sándor Lovász
Moderator: Dr. Béla Köves
Save the date: Thursday, 5 November 2020
Time: 18:30 to 19:30
Adequate bladder pain syndrome (BPS) healthcare balances between organ specific and region specific (chronic pelvic pain) treatments. A multidisciplinary approach is essential to break-up the interactive negative spirals that are part of the condition. Nonetheless, BPS is not the only inflammatory condition in the bladder and, although rare, these conditions also warrant adequate guidance.
In the last 10 years there has been an increased effort to identify BPS subpopulations and to develop more targeted treatments of our BPS subgroups.
In this UROwebinar, we will provide the current information about stratification, glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer and GAG therapy.
The trigger of Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome (IC/BPS), the leaky urothelium, can be best treated by locally administered drugs of GAG-layer compounds. Just a small portion of IC/BPS patients (around 15-20%) accept instillation therapy, due to the high treatment costs and the painful catheterization.
Recently there are new treatment options available, preventing these dissuasive factors. We give the basic answers to the why, what, how and when.
We will explain the…
- Rationale for the intravesical treatment
- Analyse the optimal drug cocktail
- Report on a new pain-free instillation method and the innovative aiding device for self-instillation
Finally, we will reveal the key to optimized timing of instillations and the influence of these factors on treatment expenses.
