Comparative radiographic and clinical outcome of two-hold and multi-hole symphyseal plating.
Considering the data, the patient suffered from a symphyseal diastasis leading to widening of the left sacroiliac joint with a rupture of the left anterior sacroiliac ligaments and by the hypermobility of the sacroiliac joint to a consecutively transiliac instability manifested as ventral ilium fracture.
The variables with the highest loadings along PCI were symphyseal knob length, the lengths of the first 2 anal-fin spines, and the length of the first dorsal-fin spine (Table 1).
If the symptoms have been reported for greater than six months, sclerosis of the adjacent pubic bones and narrowing of the symphyseal joint space may also be present.
The anterior sacroiliac, symphyseal and sacrospinous ligaments are arranged transversely and resist forces that lead to rotation of the pelvis (Theumann et al 2002)
13) Repair results in symphyseal sclerosis and irregularity, which is a secondary process rather than an active process, and that is why conventional radiographs and isotope bone scans can be inaccurate.
Individual II--woman, aged 50-65--, mainly from assemblage 26 (less assemblages 29, 2 and 1), is determined by fragments of petrous parts of left and right temporal bones (pair), left mastoid, right patella, and symphyseal face of pubic bone.
They include (1) a narrow pelvis (even if the bones are more robust in males), (2) a narrow sciatic notch in males (~30[degrees]), (3) a narrow subpubic angle, (4) absent or shallow pre-auricular sulcus (deep groove in females), (5) flat auricular area of the ilium (area of articulation with the sacrum), (6) larger symphyseal face in males, (7) flat medial portion of the ischiopubic ramus in males, (8) larger acetabulum in males, (9) shorter pubis in males, and (10) no ventral arc on the pubis (Stewart, 1968; Krogman & Iscan, 1986).
7) Diastasis symphyseal pubis, that is, separation of the pubic symphyseal bones, is an uncommon event which may occur during delivery as a result of rapid birth, (6) or forceps delivery, in late pregnancy or even post-natal.
Serum relaxin, symphyseal pain, and back pain during pregnancy.
