Evidence on the length dependence of the contraction velocity of smooth muscle fibres is contradictory. Nevertheless, a thorough understanding of this dependence is essential for a correct urodynamic diagnosis of voiding problems. We studied muscle fibres of pig urinary bladders (n=23). Force-velocity relations were measured at different muscle lengths with a stop test technique. This method involves measuring force generation of electrically stimulated muscle fibres during controlled… CONTINUE READING
