OBJECTIVE To comparatively define the biomechanical characteristics of the pelvic organs (the vagina, bladder, and rectum), which are crucial for the maintenance of pelvic support. Despite minimal fundamental studies, meshes are increasingly implanted into the vesicovaginal and rectovaginal spaces to replace disrupted native tissues and to treat pelvic organ prolapse. However, the mechanical characteristics of these materials have not yet been compared with those of the "functional unit," the… CONTINUE READING
