Overview

This book provides a comprehensive review of the present state of knowledge about normal lower urinary tract function. The various topics are presented both in detail for reference purposes and in summary to allow those new to the subject to obtain a good understanding of basic science in this area. There is particular emphasis on the control of bladder and urethral function with discussions of neuromorphology and neurophysiology - both clinical and experimental. The function of bladder smooth muscle is covered in detail. Everywhere the distinction between animal and human studies is made clear. The hydrodynamic behaviour of the human bladder is described with a review of the results from investigation of normal subjects. Readers of this book should become familiar with the various areas of controversy concerning bladder function and obtain a clear idea of the direction of current research, as well as being able to identify areas for future investigation.
