On the May 2019 cover: Ureter within ureteral tunnel and ureteral lengths. Superior view of dissected right pelvic sidewall in unembalmed cadaver illustrates relationship of ureter to uterine artery, anterior portion of parametrium (cardinal ligament), and bladder wall. The cardinal ligament has been transected and edges (asterisks) are reflected superior and laterally with tissue clamps. Bladder wall has been transected above trigone. Note connections of bladder to cardinal ligament. Indirect mean pelvic ureteral lengths for right side are shown as well as mean direct intramural ureter length. Large arrow represents the direction (left and cephalad) of gentle traction applied to the uterus to best visualize the course of the right ureter. See the article by Jackson et al.
