Preliminary studies by our group and others indicate that angiotensin II may have an important role in the cellular regulation of smooth muscle growth and collagen production in the bladder. The exact mechanisms in which angiotensin II elicits its cellular effects are not known. Given the available information thus far, we hypothesize the following (see Figure 2): 1) Outlet obstruction of the bladder causes increased cell stretch/strain which in turn induces the local production of angiotensin… CONTINUE READING
