44 Possible Causes for Prominent Sacrum

  • Brachyphalangy Polydactyly and Tibial Aplasia/Hypoplasia

    sacrum[] […] helices cleft lobules Skeletal: delayed bone age Skin Nails Hair Skin: scalp defect pterygium (elbows and knees) aberrant skin dimples (elbows and knees) Skeletal Spine: prominent[]

  • Small Pelvic Inlet

    A platypoid pelvis is flattened at the inlet and has a prominent sacrum. The subpubic arch is generally wide but the ischial spines are prominent.[] The pelvic brim is an approximately apple-shaped line passing through the prominence of the sacrum , the arcuate and pectineal lines , and the upper margin of the pubic symphysis[] Ischial spines of average prominence . 4. Well-rounded sacrosciatic notch 5. Well-curved sacrum 6.[]

  • Skin Ulcer

    Assess the skin over bony prominences (sacrum, trochanters, scapulae, elbows, heels, inner and outer malleolus, inner and outer knees, back of the head).[] A pressure ulcer usually occurs over a bony prominence at the sacrum, hip (trochanter), heel, shoulder, or elbow.[] 6 hours most vulnerable areas are the heels, coccyx, sacrum, femoral trochanter (bony prominences) skin and subcutaneous tissues compressed or subjected to shear forces -[]

  • Pressure Ulcer

    A pressure ulcer usually occurs over a bony prominence at the sacrum, hip (trochanter), heel, shoulder, or elbow.[] Most common sites for pressure ulcers are bony prominences such as the sacrum, ischial tuberosities, and heels/feet. 7-8% of those who develop pressure ulcers will die from[] The most frequent sites for pressure ulcers are the occiput, sacrum, ischial tuberosities, trochanters, lateral malleoli and posterior heels.[]

  • Spondylolisthesis

    He reported a bony prominence anterior to the sacrum that obstructed the vagina of a small number of patients.[] History [ edit ] Spondylolisthesis was first described in 1782 by Belgian obstetrician Herbinaux. [18] He reported a bony prominence anterior to the sacrum that obstructed[] The sacrum becomes more vertical, and the buttocks appear heart shaped because of the sacral prominence.[]

  • Coccygeal Fracture

    […] apex: distal rounded prominence Articulations Sacrococcygeal symphysis: fibrocartilagenous joint that connects the apex of sacrum to coccyx.[] […] attachment for the coccygeus , sacrospinous ligament, sacrotuberous ligament , and fibers of the gluteus maximus base: proximal oval surface for the articulation with the sacrum[]

  • Low Anorectal Malformation

    The fistula may be located at The lower (bulbar) part of the urethra Lower urethral fistulas are usually associated with good-quality muscles, a well-developed sacrum, a prominent[] […] midline groove, and a prominent anal dimple.[] The higher (prostatic) part of the urethra Higher urethral fistulas are more frequently associated with poor-quality muscles, an abnormally developed sacrum, a flat perineum[]

  • Tissue Breakdown

    ., tendons, joint capsules) Pay special attention to all high-risk areas such as bony prominences, skin folds, sacrum, and heels.[] […] shear-reducing intervention, the skin and deep tissues are vulnerable to shear induced trauma at the scapula, sacrum and heels.[] Particular attention should be paid to areas of bony prominence, which are at an increased risk for pressure injury due to pressure, friction and shearing forces.[]

  • Hypochondrogenesis

    Type II achondrogenesis is characterized by virtual absence of ossification in the vertebral column, sacrum and public bones ...[] Radiological features are characteristic, with virtual absence of ossification of the vertebral column, sacrum and pelvic bones.[] In both forms the trunk is short with prominent abdomen and hydropic appearance. Micromelia is striking. In both, death occurs in utero or the early neonatal period.[]

  • Mazzotti Reaction

    They can occur all over the body but are most frequent over bony prominences, e.g., the elbows, iliac crests, sacrum, knees, and skull.[]
