Abstract

Background/Purpose: The acid-hematuria syndrome, which presents with dysuria, hematuria, and perineal pain still remains a problem in those patients who have undergone bladder augmentation using the gastrocystoplasty technique. Additionally, there is still a question regarding the explanation for postoperative metabolic problems such as metabolic alkalosis, hypocholoremia, hypergastrinemia, and various complications related to gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. The aim of this study was to investigate the relation of Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection in this patient group and the relationship between HP infection and the above-mentioned clinical problems and complications.
