diagonal conjugate

(redirected from conjugata diagonalis)

di·ag·o·nal con·ju·gate

[TA]
the anteroposterior dimension of the inlet that measures the clinical distance from the promontory of the sacrum to the inferior margin of the pubic symphysis, measured manually per vagina or by ultrasonography. It is used to extrapolate the true conjugate.

When Table 1 is investigated, a difference (P < 0.05) was determined between dorsal transverse, cranial transverse, caudal transverse, medial transverse, right oblique, and left oblique diameters, conjugata vera, conjugata diagonalis, vertical diameter, and inclinatio pelvis and the angle between arcus ischiadicus from measurement values of pelvic cavity belongs to male and female rabbits.
According to biometric measurements of pelvic cavity diameters belongs to males and females, there was statistical difference between dorsal transverse, cranial transverse, caudal transverse and medial transverse diameters among transverse diameters of pelvis, between right oblique and left oblique diameters among oblique diameters of pelvis, between conjugata vera and conjugata diagonalis among conjugate diameters of pelvis and between vertical diameter; inclinatio pelvis and the angle between arcus ischiadicus and these values were higher for females than males.
