Recent evidence suggests that lower urinary tract functions may be influenced by reproductive status, particularly under pathophysiological conditions. This study used repeated cystometrograms via a transurethral catheter to investigate the influence of estrous stage on micturition thresholds before and after turpentine-induced bladder inflammation in urethane-anesthetized female rats. Whereas there were no estrous influences on micturition threshold in the uninflamed bladder, micturition… CONTINUE READING
