Broken Pelvic Bone? Fractured Pelvis in Auto Accident?
The pelvis or pelvic girdle is a ring like structure located at the base of the spine (also known as the caudal end). In an adult, it is created by the sacrum and the coccyx, the caudal part of the axial skeleton, and a pair of hip bones, part of the appendicular skeleton or lower extremity. Until puberty, each hip bone consist of three separate bones that fuse togthe rin adulthood, called the the ilium, ischium, and the pubis. Thus the pelvis is actually made up of five to seven bones.
The ilium is the largest and upper most part, the ischium is the posterior-inferior (back-lower) part, and the pubis is the anterior (front) part of the hip bone. The two hip bones are joined anteriorly at the symphysis pubis andposteriorly to the sacrum. The pelvis incorporates the socket portion of the hip joint (the acetabulum) for each leg (in bipeds) or hind leg (in quadrupeds). It forms the lower limb (or hind-limb) girdle of the skeleton.
