The Influence of Bladder Dynamics on Ureteral Dynamics

  • P. D. Zimskind


Recent studies in the pathophysiology of the ureter have demonstrated disorders of ureteral motility which can contribute to the development of urinary tract infection or hydronephrosis. Significantly, some of these disorders were demonstrated by pressure studies of the ureter and bladder, while by intravenous urography the urinary tract appeared normal (Zimskind, et al., 1968; Davis and Zimskind, 1963; Davis, et al., 1963).
