First, a line is drawn between the anterior superior iliac spine and the superolateral aspect of the patella.
As demonstrated in the figure, there are no clear gaps between the two ends of the heterotopic bone with that of the anterior superior iliac spine and femur.{Figure 1}
After prepping and draping, a starting point was identified by fluoroscopically locating the intersection of a line along the long axis of the femoral shaft and perpendicular to this line at the level of the anterior superior iliac spine. The side struts of the pelvic C-clamp (Synthes, PA) with attached spikes were passed through stab incision until the tips of the spikes contacted the lateral cortex of the flat portion of the ilium directly opposite the S1 body.
Anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS), ischial tuberosity (IT), and anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) avulsion fractures are more prevalent, (4) while lesser trochanter avulsion fractures are more rare.
The anatomic variation of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve in relation to the anterior superior iliac spine and the iliac crest.
Quadriceps femoris angle, which is also known as Q angle or patellofemoral angle, has been defined as the angle between a line drawn to the center of patella from anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and another one drawn from the center of patella to tibial tubercle center (Hahn and Anders,1997).
Greater trochanter, iliac crest, anterior superior iliac spine, and femoral artery were marked.
The reason to use de AIIS and not the anterior superior iliac spine is because using the exact middle point of the muscle helps us to find its thickest part using as reference the insertion points of this muscle (RF) and the reason to use a third of the distance will be discussed latter.
The obstetric parameters included mode of delivery (spontaneous vaginal delivery (SVD) versus cesarean section (CS)), use of forceps, postpartum hemorrhage, emergency birth, uterine inertia, duration of the first stage and second stage of labor, birth canal laceration (e.g., cervical laceration, vaginal laceration, and perineal laceration), fetal biparietal diameter and amniotic fluid index (within one week before birth), and pelvic measurements (including the anterior superior iliac spine diameter, iliac spine diameter, sacral shame diameter, and ischial tuberosity diameter).
Using sagittal and axial CT images, the vertical distance from the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the anterior abdominal wall skin to the caecum was measured (Figure 3).
A needle (white arrow) can be inserted close to the anterior superior iliac spine and advanced between the psoas major and iliacus muscles.
External oblique (EO) muscle: The electrode was placed at a 45[degrees] oblique angle, midway between anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the lowest part of the rib cage (13).
