midplane


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus.

pel·vic plane of least di·men·sions

the plane that extends from the end of the sacrum to the inferior border of the pubic symphysis; it is bounded posteriorly by the end of the sacrum, laterally by the ischial spines, and anteriorly by the inferior border of the pubic symphysis.
