Diagnostic cystoscopy is an endoscopic examination to check urinary bladder, prostate and urethra (tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body). Nowadays mostly flexible instruments are used. Procedure is usually done in local anesthesia. Typical findings are stones (movie), tumors or obstructions caused by prostate or urethra.
Lithotripsy is a procedure to break up stones in the bladder, ureter or kidney. The movie shows a pneumatic lithotritor. It is called Lithoclast and works like a small jackhammer.
Ureteroscopy is an examination of the upper urinary tract, usually performed with an endoscope that is passed through the urethra, bladder, and then directly into the ureter (tubes made of smooth muscle fibers that propel urine from the kidneys to the urinary bladder). The procedure is useful in the diagnosis and the treatment of disorders such as stones or tumors in the ureter or kidney. The movie shows extraction of stone by forceps.
TransUrethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (TUR-BT) is an endoscopic procedure to remove tumors from urinary bladder. It is performed by visualizing the tumor through the urethra and removing tissue by electrocautery. The movie shows an medium size cancer of bladder which is finally total removed.
