Objective: During pectopexy surgery, the prolapsed uterus or the vaginal apex is fixed to the pectineal ligament. The anatomic structures found in the lateral part of the prevesical and paravaginal space above the obturator fossa, raise the importance of the surgical steps required to prevent complications. This study was conducted to evaluate the proximity of vascular structures to the pectineal ligament.
