As transvaginal delivery may led to bony and soft birth canal injury, this study aimed to explore the possible relationship between the pelvic bones injury and the pelvic floor support muscles injury. In this study, we found that the pubic injury with significant clinical symptom may suggest the occurrence of pubococcygeus muscle injury with hidden symptoms. With the increased severity of the pubic bone injury, the higher the rate and severity of pubococcygeus muscle injury could be detected, which could be used to guide the clinical evaluation of abnormalities and corresponding rehabilitation treatment in time.
