Fixing the Deepest Point on Greater Sciatic Notch for Measuring or Calculating Maximum Depth of Greater Sciatic Notch
Keywords:Hip bone, gender, maximum depth of greater sciatic notch, Arcuate line.
Background: Aim of the present study is to fix the deepest point in the curvature of greater sciatic notch for
measuring or calculating maximum depth.
Material and Method: Hip bones of each sex (30 male and 30 female) were divided in two groups consisting
of 15 bones in each group. For first group the farthest point from the maximum width of greater sciatic
notch was taken as the deepest point. For the second group the point of first touch from arcuate line onto
the greater sciatic notch curvature was taken as the deepest point. Maximum depth of greater sciatic notch
was calculated from that point for both groups. The maximum depth of greater sciatic notch for each sex
were checked for any statistical difference between the two groups by using two tailed t-test to calculate the
Result: p-value, for maximum depth of greater sciatic notch between group 1 and 2 was found to be 0.149
for male hip bones and 0.8883 for female hip bones. Statistically there was no significant difference in the
maximum depth of greater sciatic notch calculated by fixing the deepest point either from maximum width
of greater sciatic notch or from arcuate line.
Conclusion: We can use the point of first touch from arcuate line to greater sciatic notch as the point of
maximum depth of greater sciatic notch.
