They separate the superior surface from the infero-lateral portions of the inferior aspect of the bladder wall (Fig. 993, A). The posterior border stretches across between the lateral angles of the bladder, and separates the superior from the basal surface of the viscus. The superior surface is related in the male to coils of intestine; in the female it is also related to the anterior surface of the uterus. The lateral border of the empty bladder lies against the pelvic fascia just above, or at the level of the arcus tendineus of the levator ani muscle. The ductus deferens crosses the lateral wall of the pelvis parallel to it, but at a considerably higher level. In median section the cavity of the empty and relaxed bladder often presents the appearance of a Y-shaped chink, the stem of the Y being represented by the urethra as it leaves the organ, and the two limbs by the narrow intervals between the superior surface and the under parts of the bladder wall which lie in front of and behind the urethral orifice. This relaxed form is sometimes described as the diastolic condition of the empty bladder, and is found associated with a bladder wall of but little thickness, and with a concave upper surface. The condition is usually the result of an escape of fluid after death, when the bladder wall has lost the power of contracting. It certainly does not Lig. umbilicale medium [urachu Obliterated part of the umbilical artery Inferior epigastric artery Ductus deferens—r Colon Tuberculum pubicum Ilio-pectineal eminence Inferior epigastric |5v artery Ductus deferens .Urinary bladder (highest point) Sacral promontory Ureter Common iliac artery Fig. 994.—View looking into the Pelvis from above and somewhat behind.
