In this lecture, Professor Michel Cosson explains the use of biomechanics to better understand the pathophysiology of genitourinary prolapse. The biomechanical and anatomical simulation of the female pelvic cavity is described with regards to hypermobility, hyperelasticity, geometry, and anatomy. Biomechanics model illustrations and model applications in surgeries, such as sacropexy, anchoring points, meshes and fixation points are discussed.
