Abstract

The pelvic floor constitutes the caudal border of the human’s visceral cavity. It is characterized by a complex morphology because different functional systems join here. Since a clear understanding of the pelvic floor region is crucial for both male and female pelvic surgery and for fundamental mechanisms of urogenital dysfunction and treatment, we have focused on a morphological concept of this region that is in accordance with actual clinical concepts.
