The myometrium is the:
Made of:
middle layer, smooth muscle
loose connective tissue
The endometrium is the:
Made of:
Contains the:
musous layer, firmly adherent to the myometrium
Dense connective tissue
epithelium, glands, vessels
The uterine shape is:
Measures: (l,w,h)
3 uterine divisions:
8 x 5.5 x 3cm
Fundus, body, tubular cervix
Tubular Cervix
superior to the entrance of the fallopian tubes
upper 2/3 of the uterus
lower 1/3 of the uterus
Normal, uterus is bent forward on its own axis, body is at an angle to the cervix
Only the body and fundus are tilted forward
Entire uterus is tilted backwards
Only the body and fundus are tilted backwards
