1 The Hip

2 Pelvic (Hip) Girdle Two hip bones (each also called coxal bone or os coxae) – Attach the lower limbs to the axial skeleton with strong ligaments – Transmit weight of upper body to lower limbs – Support pelvic organs

3 Os coxae Each hip bone consists of three fused bones: ilium, ischium, and pubis

4 Together with the sacrum and the coccyx, these bones form the bony pelvis

15 Comparison of Male and Female Pelves Female pelvis – Adapted for childbearing – True pelvis (inferior to pelvic brim) defines birth canal – Cavity of the true pelvis is broad, shallow, and has greater capacity

16 Comparison of Male and Female Pelves Male pelvis – Tilted less forward – Adapted for support of male’s heavier build and stronger muscles – Cavity of true pelvis is narrow and deep A man’s hip

17 Comparison of Male and Female Pelves CharacteristicFemaleMale Bone thicknessLighter, thinner, and smoother Heavier, thicker, and more prominent markings Pubic arch/angle80˚– 90˚50˚– 60˚ AcetabulaSmall; farther apartLarge; closer together SacrumWider, shorter; sacral curvature is accentuated Narrow, longer; sacral promontory more ventral CoccyxMore movable; straighterLess movable; curves ventrally

21 The Lower Limb Carries the weight of the body Subjected to exceptional forces Three segments of the lower limb – Thigh: femur – Leg: tibia and fibula – Foot: 7 tarsal bones in the ankle, 5 metatarsal bones in the metatarsus, and 14 phalanges in the toes

22 Femur Largest and strongest bone in the body Articulates proximally with the acetabulum of the hip and distally with the tibia and patella

24 Bones of the Leg Tibia Medial leg bone Receives the weight of the body from the femur and transmits it to the foot

25 Bones of the leg Fibula Not weight bearing; no articulation with femur Site of muscle attachment Connected to tibia by interosseous membrane Articulates with tibia via proximal and distal tibiofibular joints

28 Foot: Tarsals Seven tarsal bones form the posterior half of the foot Talus transfers most of the weight from the tibia to the calcaneus Other tarsal bones: cuboid, navicular, and the medial, intermediate, and lateral cuneiforms

29 Foot: Metatarsals and Phalanges Metatarsals: – Five metatarsal bones (#1 to #5) – Enlarged head of metatarsal 1 forms the “ball of the foot” Phalanges – The 14 bones of the toes – Each digit (except the hallux) has three phalanges – Hallux has no middle phalanx

32 Arches of the Foot Arches are maintained by interlocking foot bones, ligaments, and tendons Arches allow the foot to bear weight Three arches – Lateral longitudinal – Medial longitudinal – Transverse

34 Developmental Aspects: Fetal Skull Infant skull has more bones than the adult skull Skull bones such as the mandible and frontal bones are unfused At birth, skull bones are connected by fontanelles – Fontanelles Unossified remnants of fibrous membranes between fetal skull bones Four fontanelles – Anterior, posterior, mastoid, and sphenoid
