Pelvic types








The articulated pelvis forms a pelvic canal which is the birth canal. It is different in males when compared to females because of the obvious function in parturition in the female. Hence it is wider and broader in the female than the male. Above this canal at the level of the pelvic brim, we have the greater (or false) pelvis). The pelvic canal itself is the true (or lesser) pelvis. It is made up of three bones- hip bone, sacrum and coccyx. It has superior aperture, inferior aperture and midcavity.

The female pelvis has four main types- gynecoid, platypelloid, android and anthropoid pelvis.
