Superficial Perineal Space 3D

  • Description                                                
    • * Is a potential space located between the perineal membrane and the superficial fascia of the perineum.
    • * Is a thick fibrous layer that extends between the pubic arch and the ischial tuberosities, dividing the perineum into the urogenital triangle and anal triangle.
    • * Contains the bulb of the penis and the clitoral bodies, as well as the proximal parts of the spongy urethra and the vagina.
    • * The muscles of the superficial perineal space include the bulbospongiosus, ischiocavernosus, and superficial transverse perineal muscles.
    • * The pudendal nerve provides innervation to the muscles and skin of the superficial perineal space, as well as the external genitalia.
    • * The blood supply to the superficial perineal space is provided by the internal pudendal artery and vein.

 

  • Perineal Membrane
    • * Spans the urogenital triangle of the perineum as a strong, fibrous sheet of tissue.
    • * Extends laterally between the ischiopubic rami and medially to the central tendon of the perineum.
    • * Separates the deep perineal space below from the superficial perineal space above.
    • * Provides attachment for several muscles of the pelvic floor, such as the external anal sphincter, bulbospongiosus, ischiocavernosus, and superficial transverse perineal muscles.
    • * Contains several small apertures for the passage of nerves and blood vessels.

 

  • Colles' Fascia
    • * Covers the perineal membrane and the muscles attached to it as a layer of fascia.
    • * Extends laterally to the ischial tuberosities and anteriorly to the inferior border of the pubic symphysis.
    • * Forms a continuous sheet with Scarpa's fascia of the lower abdominal wall.
    • * Helps to maintain continence and support the pelvic floor by limiting the downward movement of pelvic organs.
    • * Contains small blood vessels and lymphatics that supply the skin and subcutaneous tissues of the external genitalia.
