urinary bladder

The 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.

A. If you refer to removal of the gal bladder due to stones, then it may be performed either in an open approach (using an arch-like incision in your right upper abdomen) or in a laparoscopic approach (using only three small incisions to insert devices into your abdomen).
