The two functions of the urinary bladder is to store urine at low intravesical pressures, and to periodically expel the urine through a coordinated contraction of the bladder and relaxation of the urethra. To a large extent, urinary bladder function depends upon the underlying structure of the organ as a whole, particularly on the inter-relationships among the smooth muscle, connective tissue, and neuronal elements. An alteration in the ratio of connective tissue to smooth muscle, for example… CONTINUE READING
