The deep perineal pouch (also deep perineal space) is a human anatomical term that refers to the space enclosed in part by the perineum, and located superior to the perineal membrane.

Contents

Structure

The deep perineal pouch is bordered inferiorly by the perineal membrane, also known as the inferior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm. It is bordered superiorly by the superior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm. [1] The deep pouch is now described as the region between the perineal membrane and pelvic diaphragm. [2]

Contents

The deep perineal pouch contains:

"Urogenital diaphragm"

Older texts have asserted the existence of an "urogenital diaphragm", which was described as a layer of the pelvis that separates the deep perineal sac from the upper pelvis, lying between the inferior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm and superior fascia of the urogenital diaphragm.
