Step 1
Define the boundaries of the perineum.
Each of the steps in the dissection includes more specific instructions for the dissection of that step. The buttons below provide lists of all the structures that will be dissected in this session.


Step 2
Put the cadaver in a prone position with a block under the pelvis. Skin the region of the anal triangle and clean the ischiorectal fossa.
Step 3
With the cadaver in the supine position, spread the thighs and finish skinning the urogenital area. Dissect the contents of the superficial and deep perineal pouches.
