The SCIA takes off from superficial femoral artery or from a common trunk with the superficial inferior epigastric artery and runs superolateral toward the anterior superior iliac spine. Its superficial branch runs above the deep fascia of the Sartorius muscle and distally in the fat.
A line has been drawn (B) between the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the pubic tubercle.
Pelvic width was found by measuring the distance between both anterior superior iliac spine, while femur length was found by measuring the distance between trochanter major and condylusmedialis.
The needle insertion site for SNB in their study was at the midpoint between the anterior superior iliac spine projection on the midaxillary line and the greater trochanter.
Univariate logistic regression results revealed that the newborn's gender, birth weight, intracranial hemorrhage, mode of delivery, cesarean history, maternal age, duration of the first stage of labor, duration of the second stage of labor, emergency birth, premature rupture of membranes, anterior superior iliac spine diameter, birth canal laceration, and cord around the fetal neck correlated with the degree of RH in newborns (p <01).

(a) The probe is axially oriented, slightly rotated clockwise, and medial to the anterior superior iliac spine where the phantom needle is oriented in-plane with the US/MR image planes.
(1) Sudden onset groin pain with the sensation of a "pop" while kicking should raise suspicion for an avulsion fracture of the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) or anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) in the kicking leg and labral injury in the planted leg.
The location for placement of the anterolateral portals was delimited with a triangle formed with a line drawn using a surgical marker between the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) and the upper margin of the greater trochanter of the femur, a second longitudinal line drawn from the ASIS to the midpoint of the upper margin of the patella, and a third transverse line perpendicular to the first one extending from the upper margin of the pubic symphysis to the upper margin of the greater trochanter (Philippon et al., 2007; Robertson & Kelly).
Any number of measures have been used to characterize differences in pelvic morphology, including pubic arch angle, diameter of the pelvic inlet, pelvic depth (i.e., anterior-posterior distance between the pubic tubercles and posterior superior iliac spines [PSISs]), and distance between the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) (Figure 1) [11-13].
The anatomical landmarks that are commonly located and contacted to perform these tests include the anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS), the posterior superior iliac spine (PSIS), the iliac crest, the sacral sulcus, the sacral apex, and the inferior lateral angle of the sacrum (SILA).
From the drawn line connecting right anterior superior iliac spine and right posterior superior iliac spine, the angulations were analyzed in relation to a second line drawn in parallel to the ground, assuming three categories: 1.
