Pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) are complex conditions that impact millions of women worldwide.
Based on the AUGS/IUGA PFD Week Basic Science Symposium 2019, the IUGA Basic Science SIG and AUGS Basic Science Committee have developed an E-Book entitled Pelvic Floor: Foundational Science and Mechanistic Insights for a Shared Disease Model to present a comprehensive review of the mechanistic insights. The overarching goal of the E-Book is to synthesize and interpret the available mechanistic data and to build a shared disease model of 2 PFDs—POP and SUI—that will serve to
(1) further our understanding of the pathogenesis of these PFDs
(2) recognize important knowledge gaps and pinpoint research priorities
(3) identify novel targets for interventions, and
(4) facilitate economically viable cross-disciplinary research initiatives.
