Radiation-induced cystitis (RIHC) is a late complication of pelvic radiation therapy defined by irritative lower urinary tract symptoms with recurrent and sometimes refractory hematuria. Conservative or endoscopic treatments are the first lines, but cystectomy in required in refractory cases. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HOT) has recently emerged in the management charts for recurrent and refractory hematuria. Thanks to its neoangiogenic and stem-cell stimulation properties, HOT achieves a complete resolution of hematuria in almost two third of patients and appears to be a good therapeutic alternative for this fragile population. However, its geographical availability is currently limited in Switzerland and its implementation can sometimes require long hospital stays.
