    The objective of the study was pelvic floor dysfunction has a number of causes including advancing age, vaginal parity, and obesity. The condition is associated with urinary, genital, and anorectal abnormalities. 

        


    At the end of the study they came to the conclusion that although patients typically had symptoms of a single compartment defect, cystoproctography revealed multi- compartment defects. Abnormalities of all 3 compartments were found in 95% of patients with pelvic floor dysfunction.

        


    Editorial comment by A Bergman:- It is unusual to see weak support to 1 compartment and adequate support to the rest of the pelvic floor. It is important when taking a history of urinary incontinence to ask about fecal incontinence, and when examining pelvic relaxation to carefully look for support defect in all 3 compartments. Correcting a defect of 1 compartment while leaving other defects untreated will result in recurrences.
