Supravaginal portion of cervix
|Supravaginal portion of cervix|
|Latin||Portio supravaginalis cervicis|
The supravaginal portion of the cervix (also known as the uterine portion of the cervix) is separated in front from the bladder by fibrous tissue (parametrium), which extends also on to its sides and lateralward between the layers of the broad ligaments.
It is in relation with the rectum, from which it may be separated by coils of small intestine.
