INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS This study aims to elucidate and expand current knowledge of the uterosacral ligament (USL) from a surgical viewpoint. METHODS Studies were performed on 12 unembalmed cadaveric pelves and five formalin-fixed pelves. RESULTS The USL, 12-14-cm long, can be subdivided into three sections: (1) distal (2-3 cm), intermediate (5(More)
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS The cardinal ligament (CL) still requires more precise anatomical mapping. We aim to elucidate the anatomy of the CL and the roles it plays in gynecological surgery. METHODS Studies employed sharp dissection of 28 formalin-fixed cadaveric hemipelves and 10 unembalmed cadaveric hemipelves. RESULTS The CL (total length(More)
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS This study aims to assess anatomically the likely effects of dual vaginal vault support using the uterosacral (USL) and sacrospinous ligaments (SSL) at colporrhaphy. METHODS Observations were made from 13 formalinized cadaver hemipelves to determine the vaginal vault support likely to be provided by traction on the (a) USLs and(More)
A lumped-parameter model of the cardiovascular system , made of 3 interacting modules (an electrical heart model, an elastance-based mechanical heart model and a circulatory system) is proposed in this paper. This model is able to reproduce the clinically observed quasi-parabolic nature of the dependence of systolic blood pressure (SBP) on atrioventricular(More)
The vaginal vestibule has not been the subject of a dedicated journal article. Recent terminology has suggested its division into anterior and posterior components. The case for this division has not yet been assessed. Both components extend laterally from the hymen to the junction with the labia minora. The posterior vaginal vestibule is proposed to extend(More)
INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS the objective of this study is to examine the surgical safety and early efficacy of the midline uterosacral (ligament) plication anterior colporrhaphy (MUSPACC) procedure. METHODS a retrospective review of the perioperative data of 41 women who had undergone an MUSPACC procedure without any other vaginal vault supportive(More)
