Application of fibrin glue to damaged bladder mucosa in a case of BK viral hemorrhagic cystitis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

BK virus is a common cause of severe hemorrhagic cystitis refractory to standard treatment. We describe a technique to achieve hemostasis after failed conservative therapy using fibrin glue applied suprapubically while visualizing and insufflating the bladder through a cystoscope. Long-term hemostasis was achieved using this novel procedure.
