Radiation cystitis may occur following completion of pelvic radiotherapy. The occurrence, however, can range from two months to twenty years. The range of incidence may range from 5% to 12 %. Over 9% of cases occur with haemorrhage. Radiation cystitis can and has been treated in various ways. Bladder irrigation can be considered as a primary treatment course whereas intra-vesical instillations can be secondary. Administration of several oral and intravenous agents can also be used as a treatment option but may exhibit side effects.
Review articles are the summary of current state of understanding on a particular research topic. They analyze or discuss research previously published by scientist and academicians rather than reporting novel research results.
Review article comes in the form of systematic reviews and literature reviews and are a form of secondary literature. Systematic reviews determine an objective list of criteria, and find all previously published original research papers that meet the criteria. They then compare the results presented in these papers. Literature reviews, by contrast, provide a summary of what the authors believe are the best and most relevant prior publications.
The concept of "review article" is separate from the concept of peer-reviewed literature. It is possible for a review to be peer-reviewed, and it is possible for a review to be non-peer-reviewed.
