Effect of Nonautonomic Drugs on the Vesical Neck

  • Om P. Khanna


As a result of expanding knowledge and better understanding of neurophysiology and neuropharmacology, effective pharmacotherapy is now being used for the treatment of various disorders of micturition. In the past, drug use was aimed mainly at increasing or decreasing the activity of bladder smooth muscle. Now drugs are being used to influence not only the activity of bladder muscle but the function of the vesical neck, urethra, striated sphincter, and prostate.
