Kidneys and ureters

The main function of the kidneys is to cleanse the blood and rid the body of excess water and salts. This produces urine. The urine is transported from the kidneys via the ureters into the bladder.

Other tasks include regulating blood pressure, controlling the formation of red blood cells and producing hormones and enzymes. Every person normally has 2 kidneys, one left and one right. They are located in the area of the flanks, which is why pain is often localised there in kidney diseases, such as kidney stones. Since the kidneys perform many tasks for the body, they are very well supplied with blood. About 1800 litres of blood flow through the kidneys every day. The kidney organ is cared for by 2 medical disciplines: nephrology and urology. Nephrology is a branch of internal medicine. The nephrologist deals with the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of diseases of the kidneys. For the urologist, surgical treatment options, such as the surgical removal of tumours or stones of the draining urinary tract, are in the foreground. Due to the overlapping of urology and nephrology, there is close cooperation between these specialties.

Urinary bladder and urethra

The urinary bladder collects and stores the urine produced by the kidneys. At a certain filling level, the urinary bladder makes itself felt by the urge to urinate. The urinary bladder enables the adult human to deliberately pass urine through the urethra at specific intervals. The interaction between the urinary bladder and a sophisticated sphincter system is responsible for the controlled release of urine.

Due to its distensibility, the urinary bladder changes its shape from spherical to finally pear-shaped with increasing filling. The inner lining of the urinary bladder is formed by a special mucous membrane called urothelium. The urinary bladder is well protected in the small pelvis. In women, the urinary bladder is adjacent to the uterus at the back of the pelvis; in men, it is adjacent to the rectum at the back. In both sexes, the urinary bladder lies on the pelvic floor. Urine is excreted through the urethra. The urethra passes through the pelvic floor. The two sphincter systems of the urinary bladder are also found in this area.There are a variety of acquired and congenital diseases of the urinary bladder and urethra. Women and men are equally affected.

Sex organs

The male sexual organs are primarily used for reproduction. As with women, a distinction is made in men between internal and external sexual organs. The external sex organs include the penis and scrotum. The internal sex organs include the testicles and epididymis, the vas deferens, seminal vesicles and the prostate.

The testicles produce the male sex hormone testosterone and are the production and maturation site for sperm. The penis serves both as a sexual organ and as a carrier of the outermost section of the urethra and thus plays an important role in urination.

Sexually transmitted diseases

Burning when urinating or discharge from the urethra - these can be signs of a sexually transmitted disease. No one should be embarrassed about contracting a sexually transmitted disease. It is important to take action and get examined so that treatment can be initiated as soon as possible.
