Looking for an overview and discussion on anatomy of female pelvis? Here is what we have in store for you. This sqadia.com medical lecture provides a comprehensive elaboration on this topic. Divisions of the pelvis, pelvic inlet (brim), transverse and oblique diameters alongside the pelvic outlet has been explained in-detail. Additionally, pelvic cavity and its functions, pelvic axis, sagittal plane and types of pelvis have been delineated, expansively.
Division of Pelvis
Pelvis has been broadly categorized into true and false pelvis. The latter is divided by linea terminalis into false pelvic region. Subsequently, boundaries of true pelvis and its parts have been explicated. Parts of the true pelvis include the inlet, cavity and the outlet. Conclusively, the pelvic inlet (brim) has been highlighted.
Diameters of Pelvis
Initially, antero-posterior diameters have been shed light upon. Amongst these, obstetrical diameter, diagonal and external conjugates have been conversed about, in-detail. On the other hand, anatomical and obstetric transverse diameters have been explained. Whereas, right and left oblique and sacro-cotyloid diameters have been discussed under oblique diameters.
The major objective of this section is the pelvic outlet. Primarily, boundaries of the anatomical and obstetric outlet have been thoroughly elucidated. Furthermore, diameters of the outlet have also been brought under consideration. These include antero-posterior and transverse diameters. Conclusively, pelvic cavity has been highlighted in tandem with its contents and boundaries.
In the beginning, the educator has drawn our attention towards the pelvic planes. Following this, plane of mid cavity and of obstetric outlet has been conversed about, in-detail. Additionally, plane of anatomical outlet and sagittal plane have been explicated. Towards the end, both the pelvic and obstetric axis has been brought under discussion.
Types of Pelvis
Caldwell-Moloy classification of pelvic types has been put forward. Gynaecoid and anthropoid pelvis has been explained thoroughly in the commencement. This is followed by an elaboration of android and platypelloid pelvis. Moreover, the various functions of the pelvis have also been highlighted.
