Description

The body of the uterus has the form of a cone whose apex is at the isthmus. It has two surfaces, three margins, and two superior angles. The anterior surface is flattened and covered by peritoneum, which at the level of the isthmus is reflected upon the bladder, forming the utero-vesical pouch. This surface is in relation with the peritoneum and the bladder.
