the two os coxae are fused posterior to the sacrum and coccyx and this forms the pelvic girdle
one of three bones to form the os coxa
lowest portion of os coxa
posterior, inferior portion of the pelvis
the 3 os coxa bones come together to form a cup-like structure
this cup on the lateral surface holds the ball-shaped head of the femur.
superior margin of the ilium. when placing hands on hips they rest on the iliac crests
the posterior of the ilium articulates w/the sacrum at the sacroiliac joint
triangular bone that is formed by 5 fused vertebrae. this vertebrae and the 2 os coxa form the pelvis.
the sacrum articulates with these bones at the sacroiliac joints
anterior inferior iliac spine/process
lower projection on the lateral end of the iliac crest
the projection ends just above the superior edge of the acetabulum
posterior superior iliac spine/process
a projection on the posterior medial surface of each ilium, at the medial end of the iliac crest
posterior inferior spine/process
the projection is below the the posterior superior iliac spine/process
a cartilaginous joint wherer the pubis (pubic) bones of each side meet
large hole in the anterior surface of the coxal bone, formed by the pubis and ischium
a rough projection on the lower portion of the ischium
body rests on when sitting
a large process that projects superiorly from the junction of the neck and shaft of the femur
medial condyle of tibia
large process on the medial proximal end of tibia
articulates w/ the medial condyle of the femur
lateral condyle of tibia
large process on the lateral proximal end of tibia
articulates w/ the lateral condyle of the femur and the head of the fibula
a large bony prominence on the medial surface of the distal end of the tibia
bony projection on the lateral surface of the distal end of the fibula
