We have witnessed marked advances in pelvic reconstructive surgery over the past decade. These advances have been most notable in the areas of imaging, with the introduction of 3D ultrasound and dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as in the use of novel materials and kits for pelvic reconstructive surgery. Imaging techniques have been primarily focused on diagnostic approaches, and materials and kits obviously for therapeutic surgical approaches. Blending of these two novel tools can in fact be very helpful for the pelvic surgeon — both in fine tuning implantation techniques as well as in evaluation of post-operative results and complications.
