which joint is present between pubic bones in pelvic girdle?

  • Pelvic girdle consists of two halves called hip bones or coxal bones. Each hip bone is formed from the fusion of three bones.
    • Iilium (forms the upper part)
    • Ischium (forms the front part)
    • Pubis/pubic bone (forms the lower part)
  • Iilium, ischium and pubis in each half are separate in childhood but unite at early adulthood.
  • The two halves of pelvic girdle meet ventrally to form pubic symphysis which  is a â€‹firm, fibrocartilaginous joint , So, this pubic symphysis is also joint between the two pubic bone.
