Posterior Abdominal Wall

Describe the lumbodorsal fascia

- surrounds sacrospinalis & quadratus lumborum muscles, making posterior abdominal wall

- originates from spinous processes of lumbar vertebrae & extends anteriorly and cranially

- separates into 3 layers:

1) posterior  posterior covering of sacrospinalis & origin of latissimus dorsi

2) middle  b/w sacrospinalis posteriorly & quadratus lumborum anteriorly

3) anterior  anterior covering of quadratus lumborum and forms posterior margin of


- 3 layers connect laterally with transversus abdominis muscle

What is the significance of the dorsal lumbotomy incision?

- vertical incision lateral to border of sacrospinalis & quadratus lumborum } Petit’s triangle

 sacrospinalis is middle layer

- allows entrance to retroperitoneum without violation of musculature } no muscles are cut

What are the muscles of the lateral flank?

- External oblique  from lower ribs, moving lateral to medial going caudally

 attaches to iliac crest caudally and rectus sheath anteriorly

- Internal oblique  from lower ribs, moving medial to lateral going caudally

 attaches to iliac crest caudally and lumbodorsal fascia posteriorly

- Transversus abdominis  from lumbodorsal fascia, running directly transversely

 attaches anteriorly and medially to rectus sheath

- transversalis fascia lies directly beneath transversus abdominis m. and above retroperitoneum

Describe the Psoas and Iliacus muscles

- Psoas  originates from T12 to L5 and is covered by the psoas fascia

 50% have psoas minor, which sits medial to psoas major

- Iliacus  attaches to the inner aspect of the iliac wing (lateral to psoas)

- psoas & iliacus join caudally to form iliopsoas muscle, which inserts into lesser trochanter

What are the limits of the pleura?

- anteriorly  8th rib

As medical knowledge advances we tend to compartmentalise our specialties into smaller units; but, hand in hand with this, there is a growing understanding between the different disciplines within the caring professions. Thus we are able to share our special skills to the benefit of patients. This book is an excellent example of the advantage of interdisciplinary communication and demonstrates a refreshing holistic approach to the problems of incontinence and pelvic pain. Written with physiotherapists in mind, the editors have invited contributions from many distinguished experts in their own field. These have been compiled into a comprehensive book, which will appeal to many healthcare professionals. I have had great pleasure in reading this book. During the time that I have been involved with 'pelvic dysfunction' there have been many exciting advances. These are all included in a most readable sequence, some presented with a refreshing new twist. In particular, I would like to bring to your attention the section on 'pelvic pain'. Because of our lack of understanding it has been a problem that is too often ignored and here at last are some practical ideas for therapeutic management. There is still much progress to be made in the field of incontinence and pelvic pain and as yet, no editors can be expected to produce a definitive work. However, I would like to recommend this book most strongly. It has a new approach to this topic, which is still a major problem for many people.

Although prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men in the USA, it can be treated successfully if detected early. Disease management has gradually changed to a paradigm that relies on close monitoring through active surveillance in select patients, as well as ongoing refinements in treatment interventions, including minimally invasive procedures. This has resulted in a critical need for a more exacting methodology for performing targeted biopsies, assessing risk levels, and devising treatment strategies. Prostate MRI has emerged as the most precise, state-of-the-art imaging modality for prostate cancer diagnosis and management, thereby creating an immediate demand for radiologists to become proficient in its use.

Conceived and edited by a leading authority, with contributions from renowned experts in the field, MRI of the Prostate: A Practical Approach is the first book to tackle this important topic. It provides an overview of the fundamentals of prostate MRI acquisition, interpretation, and reporting. Readers will benefit from a wide range of insightful perspectives gleaned from years of hands-on experience.

Key Highlights

Prostate Imaging Reporting and Data System (PI-RADS) for prostate MRI interpretation and cancer risk scoringClinical pearls on the optimization and application of prostate MRI for risk assessment, disease staging, MRI-targeted biopsy, recurrent disease, and active surveillanceThe emerging utilization of PET and PET/MRI for primary prostate cancer evaluationMore than 700 illustrations with one entirely image-based chapter featuring educational case studies

Radiologists will learn how to optimally perform and interpret prostate MRI, and referring physicians will learn to integrate it into day-to-day practice. This book is an essential resource for radiologists and radiology residents, as well as urologists, oncologists, MRI technicians, and other medical practitioners who treat patients with genitourinary disorders.

Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL)" arrived in the United States in February of 1984 with explosive impact in the field of urology. The first ESWL treatment in the United States with the Dornier H~ device occurred at the Methodist Hospital of Indiana, and by the end of 1984, In spite of the rapidly the United StatesESWL study group had accrued over2,5()() ESWL treatments. accumulated experience at the six institutions involved in the FDA trial of the Dornier HM] device, other urologists in this country and around the world had little opportunity to gain knowledge about the utilization of this revolutionary technique. For this reason, the Methodist Hospital of Indiana organized the first symposium on shock wave lithotripsy in February of1985. Interest in this meeting was intense, as approval of the Dornier device had occurred only a few weeks earlier in December of 1984. Because of the success of this initial meeting, subsequent meetings have been held annually in Indianapolis. Following the third annual symposium on extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy in March of 1987, a number of participants and attendees requested that the information presented at the meeting be made available. Therefore, plans were made to publish the proceedings of the next meeting which occurred March 5 and 6, 1988. The Methodist Hospi tal ofIndiana' s 4th Symposium on Shock Wave Lithotripsy: State of the Art was the best attended meeting to date with over 650 registrants from 36 states and 24 countries.
The foundation needed for the understanding and hence the treatment of a disease is a knowledge of the natural morphology and physiology of the affected organ and the system to which it belongs. In describing the anatomy of the pelvis and its organs in relation to medical practice, attention will be paid to defensive, reproduc tive, metabolic and excretory systems as well as to describing physical features and surgical approaches. The disposition of the pelvic organs in the body framework merits particular attention. The pelvis and its organs undergo considerable sexual differentiation, the functions of those with opening and closing mechanisms require training, and the pelvis is the keystone of the lower limbs and the spine. Disorders of pelvic organs cause distressing illnesses. Deliberate limitation of the scope of this volume excludes description of the anatomic foundations of pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium. These will be dealt with in a separate volume. Not only are the anatomic foundations of medical practice the starting point of the account, they are also constantly kept in view. The illustrations and text combine to provide a visual synopsis. The illustrations are based on original dissections and are drawn true to scale as far as possible. No use has been made of special means of visualizing organs or their vasculature, such as roentgenography, computed tomog raphy, arteriography, phlebography, lymphography and sonography. Technical stan dards change rapidly and individual findings inevitably receive overmuch attention. Relevant publications are named in the list of references.
