The effect of bethanechol, a muscarinic agonist, was studied by cystometrography in conscious rats with bilateral pelvic nerve (PN) lesions. In sham-operated rats, the transvesical infusion of saline elicited regularly micturition. The micturition was abolished by the bilateral PN transection, resulting in overflow incontinence.
