The female pelvic floor is one of the most complex anatomical and functional areas of the human body due to many, often relatively poorly recognized, factors influencing its functioning. Regardless of anatomical compartments (anterior, middle, and posterior), all pelvic floor components act in unison to maintain optimal bladder, bowel, and sexual functions. As such, any kind of pelvic floor disorder (anatomical or functional) represents a significant physical, social, and economic problem that often poses a challenge to the various specialists dealing with them. It is commonly accepted that the complexity of the factors contributing to a patient’s symptoms does not always correspond to physical examination findings, and this phenomenon could only be explained by various co-existing occult conditions that are often underdiagnosed and underestimated. By expanding our diagnostic and imaging knowledge, we can better serve our patients and help them to safely return to their normal lives.
This Special Issue of JCM aims to focus on diagnostic and therapeutic modalities and risk factors, as well as on prognostic implications in patients with symptomatic pelvic organ prolapse and lower urinary tract symptoms, especially overactive bladder and various clinical types of urinary incontinence, also including modern management of urogenital fistulas. Moreover, new methods of pelvic floor imaging will also be discussed in this Special Issue, since their implementation into clinical practice can substantially enhance our skills in the diagnosis and management of pelvic floor disorders.
I am confident that this Special Issue concerning the frontiers of our specialty will keep us up to date with the latest advances in urogynecology, thanks to the contributions of renowned international experts.
