Abstract

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

p-value.

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.
