1. The retropubic space provides surgical access to the pubovesical ligament without the need to enter the peritoneal cavity.
2. The seminal vesicle lies posterior to the bladder and medial to the ampulla of the vas deferens.
3. The rectouterine pouch is a subperitoneal space posterior to the fundus of the uterus and anterior to the rectum.
4. The vesicouterine pouch is a subperitoneal space posterior to the bladder and anterior to the uterus.
5. The most inferior extent of the peritoneal cavity in the female is the vesicouterine pouch.
6. The rectovesicle pouch is unique to the male.
7. The presacral pouch contains the inferior hypogastric and the sacral plexuses.
8. The cardinal ligament (lateral sacral ligament, Mackenrodt ligament) is derived from pelvic visceral fascia.
9. The puboprostatic ligament is derived from Scarpa's fascia.
10. The pubosacral ligamentous complex is derived from parietal pelvic fascia.
11. Perivisceral fascia is derived from pelvic visceral fascia.
12. Pelvic visceral fascia is continuous with extraperitoneal connective tissue.
13. Periprostatic fascia is thickened at the posterior prostate and, at this location, is known as the fascia of Denonvillier.
14. The prostatic venous plexus is within periprostatic fascia.
15. The arcus tendineus is derived from parietal pelvic fascia (watch out here).
16. Parietal pelvic fascia is continuous with transversalis fascia.
17. The inferior fascia of the pelvic diaphragm is pelvic parietal fascia.
18. Contained within the broad ligament are two named fibrous ligaments.
19. Lymphatic channels passing through the broad ligament communicate with upper lumber nodes and superficial inguinal nodes.
20. Visceral and fibrous ligaments contribute to stabilizing the uterus.
