This section is part of our journey; it is about understanding how the lower urinary tract works and what goes wrong when it malfunctions.
From innocence to awareness and ignorance to knowing.
Women's bodies undergo a tremendous amount of changes and challenges during Pregnancy and Childbirth. Pelvic Floor Muscles are usually stretched to maximum and sometimes get damaged after vaginal births. In developing countries, obstructed labor is still a major health-care catastrophe for women between ages 15-44. One of the disastrous end results of this sometimes is Vesico-vaginal fistula and Recto-vaginal fistula. Unfortunately developing countries neither have medical or surgical technologies available nor the resources for social and family support systems (which are of utmost importance) to deal with this tragedy.
World-renowned experts will contribute state of art chapters to address these problems. The "anatomy of failure" in the past has largely been a failure to apply the correct treatment to the specific urinary malfunctions.
We hope this section will serve both as a comprehensive review and reference. But most of all, we hope that the contents of the section will motivate the interest whose future research will further enhance the understanding of this subject.
