Abstract

An in vitro cellular model was designed to simulate conditions pertinent to bladder function. The response of bladder smooth muscle cells to sustained hydrostatic pressure was examined. Further, the pressure magnitude and duration of pressure exposure necessary for the expression of specific growth factors by bladder smooth muscle cells in response to sustained hydrostatic pressure were determined. The results provide evidence that bladder smooth muscle cells respond to sustained hydrostatic pressure.
