To evaluate the clinical presentations of Ketamine cystitis and efficacy of related treatment.
Patients & Methods:
We retrospectively analyzed the clinical presentations among the 20 ketamine abusers who visited our out-patient department of Chi Mei Medical Center from January 2007 to December 2014. The clinical symptoms, laboratory results, cystoscopy findings & managements were all analyzed.
All the patient included aged between 20-40 years. Most of them had moderate to severe lower urinary tract symptoms such as frequency, urgency, dysuria, urge incontinence & bladder pain. The severity of lower urinary tract symptoms parallel to the duration of Ketamine abuse. Various degree of interstitial cystitis under the documentation of cystoscopic examination. Nearly almost the patients were treated with hydrodilatation & intravesical hyaluronic acid instillation. However, the symptoms were significant improved in those abstinence from Ketamine.
