Also known as â€śdetrusor atonyâ€ť or â€śflaccid bladderâ€ť.
The bladder enters a state of â€śpermanent fullnessâ€ť at which point urine may passively leak, or overflow, through the urinary sphincter which cannot withstand the constant pressure.
Atonic bladder and the resulting incontinence is caused by atrophy, or some form of damage, to the detrusor muscle (which causes the bladder to contract and expel urine) . This muscle weakness results in an inability to proerly empty the bladder.
If a weak detrusor muscle is indeed the problem detrusanÂ® electrical stimulation therapy can exercise the detrusor muscle to restore the strength it needs to fully void the bladder.
