This video will focus on bladder pathology seen on routine cystourethroscopy. It is intended for trainees in urology, urogynecology, as well as those in general gynecology, who plan to use cystoscopy in the office and operating room. Providers should be able to identify iatrogenic injuries as well as incidental findings in order to properly triage and treat patients.

Our goals are to discuss the pathophysiology of common benign and pathologic findings on cystourethroscopy and to show specific examples of these findings from previously completed office cystourethroscopies.

Videos taken during office cystoscopy were reviewed for content. Those with common benign as well as pathologic findings were compiled into a video library. Medical records were reviewed to confirm the findings seen as well as any pathology that was done after biopsies taken. All videos used were from patients who authorized their use for purposes of research. No patient identifiers can be noted from the video.

Cystourethroscopy is a useful tool in evaluation of a patient pre, intra and postoperatively. Familiarity with the appearance of common findings is imperative in properly diagnosing and treating patients.
