Özet

Background/Purpose: Flow of a fluid through a collapsible tube is under the influence of various factors including the external compressing pressure. The intraabdominal pressure (IAP) should influence the flow through the ureter. Therefore, an experimental study was planned to investigate the effects of ureteral length and external compressing pressure onto the intrapelvic pressure (IPP) in rabbits.
