What is pelvic bone?
The pelvis (pelvises) is the lower part of the human body between the abdomen and the thighs. The pelvic region of the trunk includes the bony pelvis, the pelvic cavity, the pelvic floor and the perineum. There is a gap in the middle of the bony pelvis of mammals, significantly larger in females than in males. Their children pass through this gap when they are born.
The pelvic cavity, typically defined as a small part of the space enclosed by the bony pelvis; alternatively, the pelvic cavity is sometimes also defined as the whole space enclosed by the pelvic skeleton. It can be subdivided into: the greater pelvis (above the pelvic brim); the lesser pelvis (below the pelvic brim); the pelvic floor (below the pelvic cavity); the perineum (below the pelvic floor).
