The KATP channels were reported to mediate the contractions of detrusor muscles [23].

The bladder wall contains 3 muscle layers that together form the detrusor muscle. Two sphincters, rings of muscle located on either side of the bladder neck, control urine flow through the urethra.
This stimulation produces neurological signals that trigger the detrusor muscle to contract, increasing awareness of bladder pressure.
Urge incontinence is a condition in which bladder-brain miscommunication produces frequent and inappropriate detrusor muscle contractions.
Overflow incontinence, estimated to occur in 7% to 11% of elderly patients, is usually the result of obstructed urinary outflow or contractile dysfunction in which the detrusor muscle does not contract enough to expel urine.
This includes patients who have weak detrusor muscle contractions resulting from diabetes, Parkinson disease and spinal cord injuries or who take medications that interfere with bladder emptying.
