www.curemedical.comThe Urinary SystemThe urinary system contains two kidneys, twoureters, the bladder and the urethra. The kidneysfilter the blood and produce urine. The urine travelsfrom the kidneys down the ureters and into thebladder, where it is stored until emptied duringurination or catheterization. The urethra is the tubethat empties the urine out of the body.When the bladder is full, the brain sends a signaldown the spinal cord to the bladder, causing it toempty. For people with spinal cord issues, the signalfrom the bladder to the brain gets interrupted,making them unable to empty their bladder.When people are unable to empty their bladder on their own, they are at risk for urinary tractinfections, as well as incontinence or involuntary loss of urine. When urine stays in the bladderand is not emptied, bacteria can grow, causing infections which can lead to illness.
