Regular peristalsis was noted which is common in the ureter, but it is rare to see intermittent spikes of raised pressure in detrusor muscle contractions.
Physiologic functions impacted by the central nervous system include: heart rate, blood pressure (BP), tone of the bladder sphincter and detrusor muscle, bowel motility, bronchodilation and constriction, pupillary dilation and constriction, sweating, catecholamine release, erection, ejaculation and orgasm, tearing, and salivation.
13) suggest that botulinum toxin injected into the detrusor muscle seems to be an efficient treatment of bladder hyperreflexia for 6 months in patients resistant to anticholinergic drugs.
Hyperactivity of the detrusor muscle occurs as a part of normal aging, but neurological conditions like stroke and Parkinson's disease also can underpin urge incontinence, as can an enlarged prostate.
Histopathologic examination revealed a high-grade urothelial carcinoma extending into the lamina propria, but not into the underlying detrusor muscle (figure 1A) and a diagnosis of pT1HGUC (high-grade urothelial carcinoma invading the lamina propria with no invasion into muscle) was rendered.
This kind of treatment is suspected to enhance the inhibitory effect of pelvic floor contraction on the detrusor muscle.
On the other hand, although the etiology of OB is still controversial, decrease in the inhibition of detrusor muscle is commonly considered to be the underlying mechanism (4).
12 Moreover, oestrogens can reduce the frequency and amplitude of detrusor contractions and so raise the sensory threshold of the bladder and promote relaxation of the detrusor muscle.
Acetylcholine released from parasympathetic nerves reaches muscarinic receptors for the stimulation of the detrusor muscle, and anti-muscarinic drugs block this interaction to control detrusor overactivity.
Urodynamic parameters can also objectively divide the contractility of the detrusor muscle into different levels by the pressure-flow rate diagram, allowing an intuitive and objective understanding of the detrusor function in MS patients.
However, the procedure is associated with a high incidence of neurogenic dysfunction of the detrusor muscle (hypo- or hypercontractility), which is the muscle associated with voiding of urine [1].
If BCR disappears, bladder dysfunction due to lower motor neuron lesion could occur; but urodynamic character of detrusor muscle could not be determined by examining BCR alone (13).
