Abstract :

Context:The sciatic notch has been widely used as a sexing criterion in modern humans.

Aims:To study characteristic of sciatic notch in 59 no. of hip bones Bhopal region.

Settings and Design:was a cross sectional study conducted on 59 hip bones (Male=30, female=29)

Statistical analysis used: Unpaired t test using Graph Pad Prism software.

Results:There was significant difference seen between males and females in all parameters. Differences were very significant for length of posterior segment of greater sciatic notch and posterior angle of greater sciatic notch.

Conclusions: Greater sciatic notch can be used in sex determination. Length of posterior segment of greater sciatic notch and posterior angle of greater sciatic notch are considered to be better parameters.
