Urethral Sphincter: a striated sphincter muscle that constricts the urethra
Source: WordNet 2.1
Urethral Sphincter: The urethral sphincter is actually the name of a group of muscles in the pelvis. These muscles work together to control the flow of urine from the bladder through the urethra to the outside of the body. The urethral sphincter controls the flow of urine by contracting around the hollow urethra, closing it and preventing urine from passing out of the body. There are two types of urethral sphincter muscles, the internal urethral sphincter muscle and the external urethral sphincter muscle.
Conditions that afflict the urethral sphincter include pregnancy, urinary tract infection, urethritis, intrinsic urethral sphincter deficiency (ISD), stress incontinence, urethral sphincter spasms, neurological conditions, and urethral sphincter incompetence.
