Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Anatomical & Surgical Chart
A New Tool for Physicians

The IUGA Public Relations Committee has developed an informative Pelvic Floor Dysfunction Anatomical & Surgical Chart as a tool for physicians to use to help educate their patients about the various types of PFD and their treatments. It’s an 8.5 x 14” full color chart and stand and contains images created by a medical illustrator. The chart is available for sale through the IUGA online store at www.iugastore.com. Please click here to view some of the chart’s content. For more information, please contact Amy Cassini, Membership Manager at amy@iuga.org.

Several IUGA members have volunteered to help translate the patient leaflets into different languages. However, additional help is needed since there are now over 20 leaflets available. It takes approximately an hour and a half to translate one leaflet and all translators receive credit on the back of the leaflet. If translations are not produced by a group it needs to be reviewed; therefore, IUGA is seeking volunteers for that role as well. To volunteer, please contact Amy Cassini, Membership Manager at amy@iuga.org
