u·ri·nar·y blad·der(yūr'i-nar-ē blad'ĕr) [TA]
Synonym(s): vesica urinaria [TA] , bladder (2) .
urinary bladderThe muscular bag for the temporary storage of urine situated in the midline of the pelvis at the lowest point in the abdomen, immediately behind the pubic bone. The bladder wall relaxes at intervals to allow filling but as the internal pressure rises the intervals become shorter and the urgency to empty the bladder becomes more frequent and then continuous. Unless emptied voluntarily, the bladder will eventually empty spontaneously.
