Dr. S. Ranjan Bajpai, Dr. Amol Maiyyar

Abstract :

 Introduction: Sacrum is an important bone while dealing with sex difference in human skeletal system. Sexual dimorphic characters of sacrum can be studied both morphologically and metrically.Material and Methods: 132 dry human sacra from the department of anatomy and department of Forensic Medicine And Toxicology, SMBT institute of Medical Sciences & Research centre, Nasik, Maharashtra were included in the study. The sliding vernier calliper was used to take maximum length and maximum eadth of sacrum. Standardized flexible steel tape for Curved length of sacrum. Result : It was found that the demarking point of sacral index is most reliable in the sexing of sacra.Conclusion: We concluded that sacral index is the most important parameter as far as the sex determination of sacrum.
