The uterine suspensory tissue (UST), which includes the cardinal (CL) and uterosacral ligaments (USL), plays an important role in resisting pelvic organ prolapse (POP). We describe a technique for quantifying the in vivo time-dependent force-displacement behavior of the UST, demonstrate its feasibility, compare data from POP patients to normal subjects previously reported, and use the results to identify the properties of the CL and USL via biomechanical modeling. Fourteen women with prolapse… CONTINUE READING
