Endoscopic biopsies for quantitative nerve density evaluation of the urinary bladder

Endoscopic biopsies for quantitative nerve density evaluation of the urinary bladder

European Urology 14(3): 236-239

Nerve density in the lamina propria from endoscopic and open bladder biopsies is compared in normal and pathologic urinary bladders. A semiquantitative appreciation of nerve density is obtained by counting the fibers in a number of high power fields after S100 staining. Nerve density scoring on endoscopic biopsies is reliable and reproducible and can be applied in the assessment of neurogenic and nonneurogenic bladder disorders.
