The use of pharmacologic agents in treating disorders of the bladder and proximal urethra has expanded because of new knowledge gained in the past few years. A better understanding of the properties of these organs as they relate to drugs has contributed to this expansion. The authors present their experience with a number of drugs in treating disorders of the detrusor muscle and proximal urethra, and they briefly review the literature.
