Hi,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic and thanks for the query.
A distended bladder means a bladder completely stretched and full with urine. It will occur if you voluntarily hold urine or else you are in retention of urine. It can be called as hypocontractile bladder or else it could be due to bladder outlet obstruction. Investigations like ultrasound , cystoscopy and urodynamic studies may help diagnose the cause and help fix the problem
Take care

Thanks for query.
The synonym for the word distended is
1-bloated,
2-dilated,
3-expanded,
4-stretched
5-swollen etc
but these words are not generally used in medical practice for distended bladder.
Thank you
