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.
Caption: Figure 1 The anterior pelvic plane tilt (APPt) is defined as the angle between the plane created by the bilateral anterior superior iliac spine to the pubic symphysis (A) and the coronal vertical plan (B).
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).
1) Sudden onset groin pain with the sensation of a "pop" while kicking should raise suspicion for an avulsion fracture of the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) or anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) in the kicking leg and labral injury in the planted leg.
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).
anterior-posterior distance between the pubic tubercles and posterior superior iliac spines [PSISs]), and distance between the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) (Figure 1) [11-13].
The anatomical landmarks that are commonly located and contacted to perform these tests include the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS), the posterior superior iliac spine (PSIS), the iliac crest, the sacral sulcus, the sacral apex, and the inferior lateral angle of the sacrum (SILA).
From the drawn line connecting right anterior superior iliac spine and right posterior superior iliac spine, the angulations were analyzed in relation to a second line drawn in parallel to the ground, assuming three categories: 1.
5) Greater trochanter of the affected limb lifting, presented like this: (a) The greater trochanter is above the nelaton line, (b) the horizontal distance between greater trochanter and anterior superior iliac spine is shortened compared with the normal side.
Materials and Methods: We measured the distance from the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) to the pubic symphysis bilaterally on each cadaver as an anatomical landmark.
A large boney prominence on the front of each ilium is called the Anterior Superior Iliac Spine (ASIS).
As the fusion of the anterior superior iliac spine apophysis occurs later than the fusion of the anterior inferior iliac spine, the fractures of the anterior superior iliac spine are more common in older adolescents and young adults.
