Pelvis and Hip

  1. List the Innominate/Coxae bones of the Pelvis.

    Where do they fuse?
    • - Ilium
    • - Ischium
    • - Pubis

    They fuse at the acetabulum.
  2. What is ASIS and what does it stand for?
    ASIS is the Anterior Superior Iliac Spine.

    It is a landmark on the anterior of the Ilium on the Pelvis.

  3. What is the AIIS and what does it stand for?
    AIIS is the Anterior Inferior Iliac Spine.

    It is a landmark below the ASIS on the Pelvis.
  4. What are the PSIS and the PIIS?
    The PSIS is the Posterior Superior Iliac Spine and it is a landmark on the posterior side of the Ilium.

    The PIIS is the Posterior Inferior Iliac Spine. It is a landmark below the PSIS.
  5. What type of joints are sacroiliac joints?

    Are they mobile?
    Sacroiliac joints are diarthrodial synovial joints.

    They are mobile.
  6. What is the symphysis pubis?
    A synarthrodial fibrous joint with minimal movement, a fibrocartilaginous disc and a ligamentous capsule.
  7. What type of joint is the hip joint?

    What is the acetabular labrum?
    A ball-and-socket joint. This means it is very mobile and relatively stable.

    The acetabular labrum is a ring of cartilage that surrounds the acetabulum and deepens the hip socket.

    *Only quadraceps muscle to cross hip

    O: AIIS

    I: Patellar Tendon

    A: Hip flexion, knee extension

    Innervation: Femoral n.
  16. Gluteus Maximus
    O: Sacrum; Superior gluteal line of ilium

    I: Greater trochanter (IT band)

    A: Hip extension and external rotation

    Innervation: Inferior Gluteal n.
  17. Gluteus Medius
    O: Iliac Crest, ilium between superior and middle gluteal lines

    I: Greater trochanter

    A: Hip abduction and internal rotation

    Innervation: Inferior gluteal n.
  18. Gluteus Minimus
    O: Posterior ilium between middle and inferior gluteal lines

    I: Greater trochanter

    A: Hip abduction and internal rotation

    Innervation: Superior gluteal n.
  19. Tensor Fascia Latae
    O: Anterior Iliac Crest

    I: IT band

    A: Hip flexion, abduction, internal rotation (also knee extension)

    Innervation: Superior gluteal n.
  20. Name the 6 deep external rotators.
    • - Piriformus
    • - Quadratus Femoris
    • - Superior Gemellus
    • - Inferior Gemellus
    • - Obturator Internus
    • - Obterator Externus
  21. Pectineus
    O: Anterior Pubic Ramus

    I: Lesser trochanter, linear aspera

    A: Hip flexion, adduction, lateral rotation

    Innervation: Femoral n. (only adductor not supplied by the obdurator n.)
  22. Inguinal Ligament
    Separates the abdominal cavity from the lower leg. Makes up superior border of femoral triangle.
  23. What is the femoral triangle and what are the borders?
    The femoral triangle is the area in which all the blood supply to the lower leg passes.

    • - Inguinal ligament
    • - Sartorius
    • - Adductor longus
