Bladder suburothelial myofibroblasts may modulate both sensory responses from the bladder wall and spontaneous activity. This study aimed to characterize further these cells in their response to exogenous agents implicated in mediating the above activity. Detrusor strips, with or without mucosa, and isolated suburothelial myofibroblasts were prepared from(More)
The micturition reflex involves afferent nerve activation when the bladder is sufficiently full and subsequent controlled firing of parasympathetic efferent nerves to contract the detrusor muscle as part of the voiding mechanism. Alteration of the sensitivity of afferent activation or loss of control over transmitter release could lead to sensory- or(More)
