Suprapelvic obliquity is associated with spine curvature and persist while patient is sitting.
We have classified the causes into the following three types: Suprapelvic obliquity, intra-pelvic obliquity (intra-PO) and infrapelvic reasons.
(10) One theoretical mechanism for this occurring is greater than normal suprapelvic muscle hypertonicity which leads to an alteration in pelvic rotation.
In fact, sacral slope influences the suprapelvic level (lordosis, kyphosis) but pelvic tilt affects the infrapelvis level, that is, the hip-femoral joints in different subject positions.
Springer and Burgess (1985) and Shirai and Tachikawa (1993) have defined another complex with randomly distributed truncate, crater-shaped dermal denticles, the "pusillus-group." Members of this group, Etmopterus pusillus (Lowe, 1839) and Etmopterus bigelowi Shirai and Tachikawa, 1993, also possess a lateral line that ends in an open groove, suprapelvic flank markings lacking a posterior branch, and a relatively cylindrical body (Shirai & Tachikawa 1993).
