About this book

"…This represents a new refreshing and logical approach to the whole anatomy and function of the pelvic floor. The Integral Theory over the years has been debated and discussed at various scientific meetings but this is the first time that the Theory has been condensed into an exciting and readable format with excellent illustrations and diagrams. I think it is an important publication which has been long overdue..." Comment on first edition from a prominent British urogynaecologist In this 3rd edition, multimedia in the accompanying DVD is used to more fully explain how lax suspensory ligaments may cause multiple pelvic floor dysfunctions, how to diagnose which structures are causing the problem, and how to perform ‘simulated’ or ‘virtual’ operations. New insights into the pathogenesis of pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, vulvodynia and interstitial cystitis are presented. The tensioned minisling as used for cystocoele, uterine prolapse, rectocoele, stress incontinence and other symptoms is described in the book and demonstrated in the DVD.
