Dorlands/Elsevier l_10/12496345

The pecten pubis or pectinate line of the pubis is a ridge on the superior ramus of the pubic bone. The pecten pubis forms part of the pelvic brim. Lying across it are fibers of the pectineal ligament and the proximal origin of the pectineus muscle. Latin is an ancient [[Indo-European languages|Indo-well as the Roman CEuropean language originally spoken in Latium, the region immediately surrounding Rome. ... Elseviers logo Elsevier, the worlds largest publisher of medical and scientific literature, forms part of the Reed Elsevier group. ... The ventral and anterior of the three principal bones composing either half of the pelvis -- called the pubic bone. ... The pelvis is divided by an oblique plane passing through the prominence of the sacrum, the arcuate and pectineal lines, and the upper margin of the symphysis pubis, into the greater pelvis and the lesser pelvis. ... The pectineus muscle is a muscle in the inner thigh, by the femur. ...

For other arcuate lines, see arcuate line. ... The anterior gluteal line (middle curved line), the longest of the three gluteal lines, begins at the crest, about 4 cm. ... The inferior gluteal line (inferior curved line), the least distinct of the three gluteal lines, begins in front at the notch on the anterior border, and, curving backward and downward, ends near the middle of the greater sciatic notch. ... The internal surface of the ala is bounded above by the crest, below, by the arcuate line; in front and behind, by the anterior and posterior borders. ... Behind the iliac fossa is a rough surface, divided into two portions, an anterior and a posterior. ... Human male pelvis, viewed from front Human female pelvis, viewed from front The pelvis is the bony structure located at the base of the spine (properly known as the caudal end). ... The anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) is an important landmark of surface anatomy. ... Below the Sartorius notch of the anterior border of the ala of the ilium is the anterior inferior iliac spine, which ends in the upper lip of the acetabulum; it gives attachment to the straight tendon of the Rectus femoris and to the iliofemoral ligament of the hip-joint. ... The ischium forms the lower and back part of the hip bone. ... The body of the ischium enters into and constitutes a little more than two-fifths of the acetabulum. ... From the posterior border of the body of the Ischium there extends backward a thin and pointed triangular eminence, the ischial spine, more or less elongated in different subjects. ... Below the ischial spine is a smaller notch, the lesser sciatic notch; it is smooth, coated in the recent state with cartilage, the surface of which presents two or three ridges corresponding to the subdivisions of the tendon of the Obturator internus, which winds over it. ... Posteriorly the Superior ramus of the ischium forms a large swelling, the tuberosity of the ischium, which is divided into two portions: a lower, rough, somewhat triangular part, and an upper, smooth, quadrilateral portion. ... The Inferior Ramus of the ischium (ascending ramus) is the thin, flattened part of the ischium, which ascends from the superior ramus, and joins the inferior ramus of the pubis—the junction being indicated in the adult by a raised line. ...

Pubis: Superior ramus (Pubic tubercle, Pubic crest, Obturator crest) - Inferior ramus (Pectineal line) The pubis, the anterior part of the hip bone, is divisible into a body, a superior and an inferior ramus. ... Medial to the pubic tubercle is the pubic crest, which extends from this process to the medial end of the bone. ... The lateral portion of superior ramus of the ischium presents a sharp margin, the obturator crest, which forms part of the circumference of the obturator foramen and affords attachment to the obturator membrane. ... The inferior pubic ramus is thin and flattened. ...

Compound: Obturator foramen - Acetabulum - Acetabular notch - Greater sciatic notch - Iliopectineal eminence - Pubic arch - Lesser pelvis (Pelvic inlet, Pelvic brim, Cavity of the lesser pelvis, Pelvic outlet) - Greater pelvis The obturator foramen is the hole created by the ischium, ilium, and pubic bones of the pelvis through which nerves and muscles pass. ... Categories: Anatomy stubs | Skeletal system ... The acetabulum presents below a deep notch, the acetabular notch, which is continuous with a circular non-articular depression, the acetabular fossa, at the bottom of the cavity: this depression is perforated by numerous apertures, and lodges a mass of fat. ... The greater sciatic foramen is bounded, in front and above, by the posterior border of the hip bone; behind, by the sacrotuberous ligament; and below, by the sacrospinous ligament. ... Medial to the anterior inferior spine is a broad, shallow groove, over which the Iliacus and Psoas major pass. ... This page may meet Wikipedias criteria for speedy deletion. ... The lesser pelvis (or true pelvis) is that part of the pelvic cavity which is situated below and behind the pelvic brim. ... The lesser pelvis (or true pelvis) is that part of the pelvic cavity which is situated below and behind the pelvic brim. ... The pelvis is divided by an oblique plane passing through the prominence of the sacrum, the arcuate and pectineal lines, and the upper margin of the symphysis pubis, into the greater pelvis and the lesser pelvis. ... The cavity of the lesser pelvis is bounded in front and below by the pubic symphysis and the superior rami of the pubes; above and behind, by the pelvic surfaces of the sacrum and coccyx, which, curving forward above and below, contract the superior and inferior apertures of the cavity... The greater pelvis (or false pelvis) is the expanded portion of the cavity situated above and in front of the pelvic brim. ...
