The urinary bladder is a sac-like muscular organ which
stores urine. An
adult bladder can hold about 800ml of urine, but it
usually is emptied when it accumulates about 400 ml of
urine. The urinary bladder has three main layers of
smooth muscle which give the bladder its elasticity.
There are three openings in the bladder: two from the
ureters, and one which empties into the urethra.
