Pelvic floor dysfunction is a common problem affecting women over 50 years of life causing significant morbidity. Traditionally, H-line and M-line measurements have been used to assess pelvic organ prolapse. However, puborectalis muscle which plays a crucial role in pelvic floor intactness can be measured to reflect the weakening of the pelvic floor. We evaluated and found puborecatalis measurement can be used as a supplement to H-line and M-line measurements in assessing pelvic organ prolapse.
