A la fase de llenado la controla el sistema simpatico a traves de los receptores [beta] y [alpha], los primeros relajan el musculo detrusor y los segundos constrinen el esfinter interno; al vaciado lo maneja el sistema parasimpatico a traves de los receptores colinergicos que hacen contraer el musculo detrusor y el nervio pudendo que relaja el esfinter externo (1,2).
