Kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and urethra or organs of urinary system.


Here is brief overview of each organ:

  • Kidneys #to# Two kidneys are present in each human which have functional units called nephrons. Nephron filter the blood, reabsorbs all the useful substances from that filtrate and remove the rest as urine from Kidneys.

  • Ureters #to# These are two tubes that drain urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Each ureter is a muscular tube about 10 inches #(25 cm)# long. Muscles in the walls of the ureters send the urine in small spurts into the bladder.

  • Urinary bladder #to# is a hollow, muscular and distendible or elastic organ that sits on the pelvic floor. It stores the urine before it's removal from the body.

  • Urethra #to# It is a muscular tube that connects the bladder with the outside of the body. It simply functions to remove urine from body through it's orifice opening i.e urethral orifice.
