This article describes in detail the alternative technique of bladder autoaugmentation. The authors applied a different autoaugmentation method to reliably create a diffuse circular bulge or diverticulum by incising detrusor muscle while leaving bladder mucosa intact. The results were assessed by urodynamic, radiological, and histopathological methods.
