Title of presentation: Ultrasound of anterior compartment disorders (7th Anorectal and Pelvic Ultrasound Seminar)

Learning objectives: Introduction to pelvic floor ultrasound - anterior compartment: anatomical accesses - transperineal (TPUS), endovaginal (EVUS), endoanal (EAUS); multidimensional ultrasound - 2D, 3D, 4D; types of transducers; possibilities/advantages and limitations/disadvantages of various anatomical accesses and transducers. Pelvic floor pathologies: urinary incontinence; pelvic organ prolapse; cystocele; rectocele; enterocele; post-surgical assessment.

Clinical/research background

  • Experience in pelvic floor ultrasound: since 2004
  • Types of examinations performed:
    • transabdominal
    • translabial/transperineal (2D/3D/4D)
    • endovaginal (2D/3D)
    • endoanal (2D/3D)
  • Diagnostics of urinary inctontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and other pathologies within pelvic floor
  • Pre/post operative diagnostics of tapes, meshes and post-operative complications
  • Number of examinations performed: approximately 300 per year
