    •      male  = more acute
    •      Female = < 90 degrees
    • Shape of inlet
    •     male = heart
    •     female = oval
    • Ischial spines
    •     male = inverted
    •     female = everted
    • Sciatic notch
    •     male = J-shaped
    •     female = L-shaped
    • Obturator Foramen
    •     male =  oval
    •     female = triangular
  4. What bones contribute to the acetabulum and what percent do they contribute?
    • Posterior = Ischium 2/5
    • Superior = Ilium 2/5

  5. What structures pass through the greater sciatic foramen?
    • Piriformis (seperates superior and inferior)
    • Above piriformis = Superior gluteal artery, nerve, and vein
    • Below piriformis = Sciatic nerve, Inferior gluteal nerve, artery, and vein
  6. What structures pass through the lesser sciatic foramen?
    Tendon of obturator internus
  7. What is piriformis syndrome?
