1

composition of the auricular surface of the ileum

articular cartilage
interspersed with fibrocartilage

2

superficial appearance of the auricular surfaces of the sacro-iliac joint by age 15

sacrum develops a sacral groove while the ilium develops an iliac ridge

3

which gender is biased with greater unevenness of the auricular surface of the sacro-iliac joint

males (gosh, that really sucks)

4

forms the accessory sacro-iliac joint

sacral tuberosity and the iliac sulcus

5

pathological or age-related modifications of the sacro-iliac joint may occur

degenerative arthrosis and ankylosis

6

what does degenerative arthrosis mean

condition of degeneration of the joint, sometimes referred to as degenerative joint disease (DJD)

7

what does ankylosis mean

condition of fibrous adhesion occurs within the joint

8

age and surface bias associated with degenerative arthrosis of the sacro-iliac joint

age 40
iliac auricular surface

9

age and gender bias associated with ankylosis of the sacro-iliac joint

age 50
male bias particularly in African American males

10

movements at the sacro-iliac joint are described as forward nodding and backward nodding

nutation and counternutation, respectively

11

attachment sites of the interosseous sacroiliac ligament

sacral tuberosity and the iliac sulcus

12

relationship between the capsular and interosseous sacroiliac ligaments

interosseous sacro-iliac ligament replaces the capsular ligament posteriorly

13

passes between the layers of the interosseous sacroiliac ligament

dorsal rami from the sacral spinal nerves

14

forms the falciform ligament

continuation of the sacrotuberous lig. along the ischial ramus

15

separates the greater sciatic and lesser sciatic foramina

sacrospinous lig.
