The interesting point is that 10 centuries ago, Avicenna had described almost all diseases of the blabber. Avicenna’s Canon of Medicine is a comprehensive book on semiology of bladder diseases. His approach to diagnoses complies with the modern methodology, and even in some interventions such as routes of drug administration and catheterization, his points are astonishing.
