Biomechanics Lower Urinary Tract Physiology
Researchers & Clinicians interested in developing theories about biomechanics, their implications to function and dysfunction of the lower urinary tract, and the mechanism by which therapeutics impact lower urinary tract biomechanics.
This workshop will provide an overview of lower urinary tract biomechanics and its relationship to Urodynamics, physiology, and pathophysiology by reviewing developing theories regarding the relationship between bladder mechanics and physiological responses at whole organ, cellular, and molecular levels. We will also relate biomechanics to pathophysiology and clinical treatments of lower urinary tract dysfunction. This workshop should provide the background for researchers and clinicians to test their own theories regarding lower urinary tract biomechanics and its impact on lower urinary tract physiology.
