Abstract in different language: Female pelvic floor dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence, fecal urgency or pelvic organ prolapse, is very often associated with injuries of pelvic floor structures during childbirth. This trauma usually causes lifelong complications leading to poorer social or/and sexual life. The paper from Great Britain published that only 9.6 % of primipara and 31.2 % of sekundipara deliver with intact perineum [5]. In addition, the older study showed that 85 % women are suffering from injury of perineum during vaginal delivery [4]. Therefore, it is essential to understand the anatomy and physiology of these structures to avoid or at least to decrease the trauma of vaginal delivery. The computer modeling is a sophisticated tool how to achieve that.
