OBJECTIVE To better understand the genital changes that occur during the female sexual response, using a gross anatomical and histological study of the vascular tissue of the vulva, supplemented with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). [...] Key MethodMATERIALS AND METHODS Seven cadaveric vulvectomy specimens were used; they were serially sectioned in coronal, sagittal, and axial planes, and stained with haematoxylin and eosin. Selected blocks were stained with elastic Masson's trichrome.Expand

TLDR
The female vulva is an intricate structure comprising several components, commonly known as the clitoris, which is widely accepted as the most critical anatomic structure to female sexual arousal and orgasm. Expand
Functional Anatomy of the Female Sex Organs
TLDR
The emphasis of the study of the female sex organs has long been on understanding its reproductive role rather than sexual responsiveness, but there is a growing awareness that sexual function and fertility/reproductive function are distinct, with unique physiological responses. Expand
The neurourological examination in women.
The review provides a description of a physical examination protocol to rule out significant neurologic disease as a cause for a woman's sexual complaints, or to confirm a neurologic cause for theExpand
HISTOLOGICAL AND IMMUNOHISTOCHEMICAL STUDIES ON THE VULVA OF SHE-CAMEL
Ten adult she-camels were used to study histological structure of the vulva and the immunohitochemical localization of estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and progesterone receptor (PR). Histologically,Expand
Chapter 2 Functional Anatomy of the Female Sex Organs
The emphasis of the study of the female sex organs has long been on understanding its reproductive role rather than sexual responsiveness. The majority of anatomic descriptions for these organs haveExpand
The Pathophysiology of Vulvar Pain
TLDR
The vulvar organ, its erotic meaning, and the many symptoms that may affect it have been too long neglected by the medical establishment. Expand
The pars intermedia: an anatomic basis for a coordinated vascular response to female genital arousal.
TLDR
The venous communications of the pars intermedia, linking the erectile tissues with the other vascular compartments of the vulva, appear to provide the anatomic basis for a coordinated vascular response during female sexual arousal. Expand

TLDR
The female orgasm should be a normal phase of the sexual response cycle, which is possible by all healthy women with effective sexual stimulation, and should be defined with Grafenberg's name. Expand
Expression of androgen receptors in the structures of vulvovaginal tissue
TLDR
Better knowledge of the role of androgens and their receptors in vulvovaginal tissue would make it possible to discern their effects on female genitalia and help us to understand new therapeutic strategies. Expand
The Physiology of Female Sexual Function and the Pathophysiology of Female Sexual Dysfunction (Committee 13A).
TLDR
Despite numerous laboratory assessments of female sexual function, genital assessments alone appear insufficient to characterise fully the complete sexual response. Expand

A morphologist's approach to the vagina--age-related changes and estrogen sensitivity.
TLDR
Differences in estrogen sensitivity between uterus and vagina are discussed as well as the background for the high vaginal sensitivity. Expand
Immunohistochemical study of the corpora cavernosa of the human clitoris.
TLDR
The findings show that tissue organisation in the corpora cavernosa of the clitoris is essentially similar to that of the penis except for the absence of the subalbugineal layer interposed between the tunica albuginea and erectile tissue, suggesting that the clitoral erection cycle differs from that ofThe penis. Expand
Anatomical relationship between urethra and clitoris.
TLDR
Current anatomical descriptions of female human urethral and genital anatomy are inaccurate, and the bulbs of the vestibule are inappropriately named as they directly relate to the other clitoral components and the urethra. Expand
Vasculogenic female sexual dysfunction: vaginal engorgement and clitoral erectile insufficiency syndromes.
TLDR
There is a growing body of evidence that women with sexual dysfunction will commonly have physiologic abnormalities, such as vasculogenic female sexual dysfunction, contributing to their overall sexual health problems. Expand
Vaginal Anatomy and Sexual Function
TLDR
Vaginal anatomy, measured by introital caliber, length, and vulvovaginal atrophy, does not correlate well with sexual function, particularly symptoms of dyspareunia and vaginal dryness. Expand

TLDR
The sexual arousal response in healthy women can be monitored at serial MR imaging with MS-325, a recently developed blood pool contrast agent, and holds promise for future studies of sexual arousal dysfunction in women. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
The presence of constipation, plus the fact that the left side is usually first affected, has lead to the theory of intestinal origin through lymphatic channels, and many agree that the point of entry is possibly through the tonsil or pharynx. Expand
