Abstract

To our knowledge this is the first qualitative description of the pelvic floor anatomy in bladder exstrophy using MRI. Our model gives further insights into the true pelvic floor anatomy in exstrophy cases and is the first to suggest that abnormalities in the pelvic floor may not correlate with abnormalities of the bony pelvis.
