Journal of Pediatric Urology
Staged pelvic osteotomy (SPO) prior to bladder closure has been shown to be a safe and effective method for achieving pubic approximation in cloacal exstrophy (CE) patients with extreme diastasis. However, SPO outcomes have never been compared to those for combined pelvic osteotomy (CPO) at the time of closure in CE patients.

Myofascial pelvic pain
Obstetrics & Gynecology Clinics of North America via PubMed
Individuals with pelvic pain commonly present with complaints of pain located anywhere below the umbilicus radiating to the top of their thighs or genital region. The somatovisceral convergence that occurs within the pelvic region exemplifies why examination of not only the organs but also the muscles, connective tissues (fascia), and neurologic input to the region should be performed for women with pelvic pain.
