Summary Dramatic improvement in imaging techniques (3D ultrasonography, dynamic magnetic resonance) allows greater insight into the complex anatomy of the pelvic floor and its pathological modifications. Obstetric events leading to fecal and urinary incontinence in women, the development of pelvic organ prolapse, and the mechanism of voiding dysfunction and obstructed defecation can now be accurately assessed, which is essential for appropriate treatment decision making. This book, written by the leading experts in the field, will be an invaluable tool for gynecologists, colorectal surgeons, urologists, radiologists, and gastroenterologists with a special interest in this field of medicine, but it will be also relevant to everyone who aspires to improve their understanding of the fundamental principles of pelvic floor disorders.
