  • OBJECTIVES To develop a 3D computer model of the anterior vaginal wall and its supports, validate that model, and then use it to determine the combinations of muscle and connective tissue impairments that result in cystocele formation, as observed on dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS A subject-specific 3D model of the anterior vaginal wall and its supports were developed based on MRI geometry from a healthy nulliparous woman. It included simplified representations of the… CONTINUE READING
