The development of alterations in urinary bladder function was studied in rats during six months of streptozotocin-induced diabetes. The results were compared with those obtained in age-matched controls. The bladders from the control rats developed with increasing age an increased micturition volume, a decreased micturition interval, and increased bladder compliance and capacity despite an unaltered bladder weight and unaltered passive and active length-tension relations. The effects of… CONTINUE READING
