Anatomy of the Genital Tract Supports

  • Robert F. Zacharin


There has been wide controversy, ranging over many aspects of the supporting anatomy of the genital tract, and although presently it is common belief that both the levator ani complex and pelvic cellular tissues have important complementary roles to play, nevertheless in the past there has been great argument as to which was the more important, and in particular how each exerted its effect on genital tract stability. These problems will be considered in terms of evolutionary anatomy, human anatomy, comparative anatomy, and functional anatomy.
