Effects of Aging and Prostatic Obstruction on Detrusor Morphology and Function

  • Jacques G. Susset


Before removing a prostatic obstruction, it must be known whether the bladder still retains the ability to contract or whether irreversible damage has developed that will prevent contraction. Even after thorough testing and examination, it is often difficult to reach such a conclusion with certainty.
