Pelvis Diagrams

Labeled pelvis diagrams are available for your body part anatomy teaching or studying resources. These anatomy diagrams show the illustration of pelvis in details. The pelvic region is the area between the trunk and the lower extremities, or legs. The female pelvis is morphologically different (different in form) from a male’s but most of the differences are not apparent until puberty. The pelvic bones are larger and broader as they have evolved to create a larger space for childbirth. First diagram is posted in the following image.

From the pelvis diagram above you can see that the bones of the pelvis are the hip bones, sacrum, and coccyx. Each hip bone contains three bones — the ilium, ischium, and pubis — that fuse together as we grow older. The sacrum, five fused vertebral bones, joins the pelvis between the crests of the ilium. Below the sacrum is the coccyx, or tailbone, a section of fused bone that is the end of the vertebral column. The pelvis forms the base of the spine as well as the socket of the hip joint. More detailed bone anatomy diagrams of the pelvis are posted below.

The following diagram shows the anatomy of pelvis fractures. Fractures of the pelvis are uncommon, accounting for only about 3% of all adult fractures. Most pelvic fractures are caused by some type of traumatic, high-energy event, such as a car collision. Because the pelvis is in proximity to major blood vessels and organs, pelvic fractures may cause extensive bleeding and other injuries that require urgent treatment. There is also a diagram that shows the sacrum and coccyx form the inferior end of the vertebral column where it meets the hip bones to form the pelvis. The triangular sacrum forms joints between the lumbar vertebrae and the hip bones. It also contains many passages for the spinal nerves that exit the spinal cord and spread through the pelvis and legs. The coccyx, or tailbone, is inferior to the sacrum and made of several tiny, fused vertebrae. Several pelvic muscles attach to the coccyx.
