|Aims and Objectives|
This 90 minute workshop is aimed at reinforcing the three dimentional pure and applied anatomy of the urinary sphincter and pelvic floor. Clinical management of incontinence will be corelated. We present a multidisciplinary approach involving a urologist, gynecologist, colorectal surgeon and a radiologist's view of pelvis . We introduce multidimensional models to facilitate the understanding of the anatomical basis of pelvic floor reconstruction. Cross-sectional Radiology and functional anatomy will be tied in to the endoscopic and laparoscopic approach for each descipline with special reference to incontinence surgery.This will take the form of a capsule of brief didactic lectures, multimedia presentations,case discussions, and questions.
