Anatomic peculiarities of cervix uteri ligaments in pre- and postnatal human ontogenesis

Slobodian, Olexandr; Guzik, Olexandra

Background: Uterus and uterine cervix ligament concept is a decisive factor for female pelvis surgery and for fundamental mechanisms of urogenitaldysfunction ascertainment.According to publications, there are contradictory ideas of morphologic organization of female pelvis connective tissue. Fromthis point of view necessity arises for system investigation of connective tissue around uterine and vagina in different age periods. Target: to ascertainpeculiarities of uterine cervix ligaments macro- and micro-structure at 1st, 2nd adult, elderly and senile periods of ontogenesis.

Material and methods: Investigations have been performed in 35 anatomical specimens. The following investigational methods have been used:macroscopy, microscopy of consecutive histological sections series, conventional and thin preparations. Statistical data processing was performedwith licensed program “Statistica” use. Received indices confidence was determined with Student’s t-test use. Values with T<0,05 have been takenstatistically significant.

Results: to ascertain peculiarities of uterine cervix ligaments their macro- and micro-structure in human ontogenesis using the morphologic and statisticsmethods.

Conclusions: The ligaments of uterine cervix have specific morphologic peculiarities of their structure and topography, and they contain differentconstituent parts in different age periods.
