Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pelvic floor dysfunction encompasses a variety of fascial and anatomic defects that can include a combination of cystocele, rectocele, uterine prolapse, enterocele and vault prolapse. Accurate diagnosis of the coexisting abnormalities is essential in planning reconstructive procedures so that the risks of recurrence and reoperation can be minimized. At this time, dynamic magnetic resonance imaging is the study of choice to evaluate the female pelvis and delineate the possible components of pelvic floor dysfunction.
