Etymologies

Sorry, no etymologies found.

Examples

  • (ischio-pubic) boundary of the perinaeum is the line along which the pudic artery passes.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • Puncture of the bladder through the rectum and of the urethra in the perinaeum.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The perinaeum, Fig. 3, Plate 50, is, for surgical purposes, described as divisible into two spaces (anterior and posterior) by a transverse line drawn from one tuber ischii, D, to the other, D, and crossing in front of the anus.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • This may be occasioned either by an unusual quantity of fat in the perinaeum, or by an enlarged prostate, or by the dilatation of that part of the rectum which is contiguous to the prostate and bladder.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The artery, in company with the nerve and vein, re-enters the pelvis by the small sciatic foramen, and gets under cover of a dense fibrous membrane (obturator fascia), between which and the obturator muscle, it courses obliquely downwards and forwards to the forepart of the perinaeum.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • In cases of impassable stricture, when extravasation of urine is threatened, or has already occurred, the urethra should be opened in the perinaeum behind the place where the stricture is situated, and this (in the present instance) certainly seems to be the more effectual measure, for at the same time that the stricture is divided, the contents of the bladder may be evacuated through the perinaeum.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • At the place where the vessel re-enters the pelvis, it lies removed at an interval of an inch and a half from the perinaeum, but becomes more superficial as it approaches the subpubic space, N.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • The coccygeal bones, Q, continuing in the curve of the sacrum, bear the rectum, W, forwards against the base of the bladder, and give to this part a degree of obliquity upwards and backwards, in respect to the perinaeum and anus.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • If he requires the perinaeum to be protruded and the urethra directed towards the place of the incision, he can effect this by depressing the handle of the instrument a little towards the right groin, taking care at the same time that the point is kept beyond the prostate in the interior of the bladder.

    Surgical Anatomy

  • If the membranous part of the urethra be that where the stricture exists, a staff with a central groove is to be passed as far as the strictured part, and having ascertained the position of the instrument by the finger in the bowel, the perinaeum should be incised, at the middle line, between the bulb of the urethra and the anus.
