round ligament of ovary
uterosacral ligament
board ligament of the uterus
suspensory ligament of the ovary

2

female spaces/pouches

supravesicular fossa
retropubic space
vesicouterine pouch
rectouterine pouch

3

supravesicular fossa

peritoneal depression anterior to the bladder, above the pubic symphysis
used for suprapubic approach to pelvic cavity

4

retropubic space

between bladder and pubic symphysis low, used for suprapubic approach

5

vesicouterine pouch

space between uterus and bladder when uterus is ante flexed (normal)

6

rectouterine pouch

between the uterus and rectum, defined by uterosacral ligament

7

how is the rectouterine pouch accessed

posterior fornix of the vagina

8

uterine prolapse

uterus protrudes into vagina

9

rectocele prolapse

rectum protrudes into vagina

10

cytocele prolapse

bladder protrudes into vagina

11

enterocele prolapse

intestine protrudes into vagina

12

what causes a prolapse

relaxed pelvic floor ligaments
damaged perineal body
excessive retroversion

13

parts of the uterine tube

fimbria
infundibulum- first part of tube
osteium- opening into peritoneal cavity
isthmus- narrow area
intramural- in uterine wall

14

salpingitis

uterine tube infection

15

what is the blood supply of the uterine tuve

ovarian artery

16

peritinitis

infection in the peritoneal cavity

17

blood supply to uterus

ovarian and uterine

18

ligments on the ovary

21

palpable structures on pelvic exam

posterior- rectum, rectouterine pouch
anterior- bladder, urethra
lateral- ureters, uterine vessels, ovaries if enlarged

22

vaginal blood supply

upper 1/3- uterine artery
middle- vaginal artery
lower- pudenal

23

mesovarium

ovary to mesometrium

24

mesosalpnix

surrounds uterine tuves

25

mesometrium

connects uterus to lateral wall

26

ovarian arteris

branch off aorta at T12
travel in suspensory ligament of the ovary
supply ovary and uterine tubes

27

uterine artery

branch off internal iliac
uterus, upper 1/3 of vagina
in transverse cervical ligament (cardinal)

28

vaginal artery

branch off internal iliac
lower vagina

29

internal pudendal artery

branch of internal iliac
supplies perineum, posterior labia, vestibule of vagina
