2-Male pelvis and perineum – plastic model http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHubw4F1OTQ
This educational video is intended to demonstrate and identify female genital organs in conventional plastic models that are frequently used for teaching medical students during anatomy practical sessions. It is not intended to provide a full description of the anatomy of female genital organs, but will only tackle the structures that are seen in the models.
After completion of this video session it is expected that students will be able to demonstrate female internal and external genital organs:
•Ovaries (position, attachments, ligament of the ovary, suspensory ligament, ovarian artery and vein)
•Uterine tubes (position, parts: infundibulum, ampulla, isthmus, intramural part, fimbria, attachments)
•Uterus (body, cervix, shape, peritoneal reflections, broad ligament, round ligament of the uterus)
•Vagina (walls, fornices, vestibule, relations, peritoneal reflections)
•Clinical significance of the recto-uterine pouch (of Douglas)
•Central perineal tendon (perineal body): location, muscles attached to it, functional significance.
•Formation of the urogenital diaphragm: Superficial and deep perineal pouches and their contents: ischiocavernosus, bulbosponsgiosus, superficial and deep transverse perineal muscles, sphincter urethrae, superior fascia of urogenital diaphragm, inferior fascia of urogenital diagphragm, crus, bulb of vestibule, corpus cavernosum.
•Components of the female external genital organs: labium majus, labium minus, vestibule, clitoris, prepuce, external urethral orifice, fourchette.
The following (12) short essay questions will appear during the video session timed according to their relation to the demonstrated structures:
1.List the boundaries of the superior pelvic aperture.
2.Enumerate the parts of levator ani muscle.
3.Describe the relation of the ureter to the uterine artery.
4.Define anteversion and anteflexion of the uterus.
5.Where does the ovarian vein drain into?
6.What is the clinical significance of the extent of the round ligament of the uterus in relation to lymphatic drainage?
7.Which fistulas in the anterior vaginal wall may result from obstetrical trauma during long and difficult labor?
8.What is the lining epithelium of the cervix at the internal and at the internal os?
9.Which nerve provides the motor innervation of the muscles attached to the perineal body?
10.What is the male homologue of the labium majus?
11.Enumerate the nerves that provide sensory innervation to the vulva.
12.What is the male homologue of the greater vestibular gland?
