Prolapse - Using POPQ and Understanding Pelvic Anatomy

Workshop 4

Aims & Objectives

180 minutes
Pelvic Organ Prolapse Anatomy POPQ System
Residents, Fellows


  1. Understanding of the POPQ system and how to apply it
  2. Knowledge of anatomic landmarks in the small pelvis as they relate to prolapse- and reconstructive pelvic surgery

At the end of the workshops delegates will be able to:

  1. Identify and reproduce all points of the POPQ system
  2. Reconstruct a specific prolapse type on a model according to given points of the POPQ system
  3. Apply the POPQ system to a specific prolapse
  4. Identify the most important anatomical-surgical landmarks on a pelvic model
  5. Describe the effect of the most common surgical procedures for anatomical structures in the small pelvis
