Tuberosity of the ischium
|Bone: Tuberosity of the ischium|
|Capsule of hip-joint (distended). Posterior aspect. (Tuberosity of ischium visible at bottom left.)|
|The superficial branches of the internal pudendal artery. (Tuber. ischial. visible at center left.)|
|Gray's||subject #57 235|
It marks the lateral boundary of the pelvic outlet.
The tuberosity is divided into two portions: a lower, rough, somewhat triangular part, and an upper, smooth, quadrilateral portion.
- The lower portion is subdivided by a prominent longitudinal ridge, passing from base to apex, into two parts;
- The upper portion is subdivided into two areas by an oblique ridge, which runs downward and outward;
The Obturator externus.
