A theoretical ovary position in link with the global anatomical structure of each human female body
Generally the position of different organs is determined by simple description following the anatomical elements surrounded them and such description could be developed and applied in surgical anatomy. Here, I present for the first time a theoretical three-dimensional ovary position in link with the global anatomical structure of each human female body. I advance the fact that ovaries are placed between two anatomical planes: a first plane of a frontal section touching at the top the internal edge of the manubrium sterni and at the bottom the convexity of the lumbar curvature of the spinal column and a second plane of a frontal section touching the two convexities of cervical and lumbar curvatures of the spinal column. Although during and after the first pregnancy ovaries become really slightly displaced they would keep the proposed three-dimensional position. The degree of accuracy of this theoretical position could be evaluated by using special combined techniques of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). If results will be positive, this finding would represent a new future view in particular fundamental anatomical studies where we will bring out the harmony between an organ position and the global individual anatomical structure.
Key words: theoretical ovary position, three-dimensional position, individual anatomical structure
