Underneath the parietal peritoneum, which covers the superior
and posterior surfaces of the pelvic viscera, we have the pelvic fascia
which can be further divided into
Parietal fascia- this covers the pelvic wall and the
surfaces of the levator ani or pelvic floor and that of the obturator
internus. It is pelvic fascia proper.
Visceral fascia. This is the endopelvic fascia. It is the
extraperitoneal cellular tissue that covers the urinary bladder, rectum
and vagina. They form ligament to anchor the cervix, uterus and vagina
to the pelvic wall. See Uterus.
Pelvic fascia in general covers organs, the pelvic wall and
the pelvic floor but avoids bones except at the fascia of Waldeyer which is
attached to the hollow of sacrum.
