ISCHIADIC SPINE

A pointed process from the posterior border of the ischium on a level with the lower border of the acetabulum; gives attachment to the sacrospinous ligament; the pudendal nerve passes dorsal to the ischial spine, which is palpable for vagina or rectum, and thus is used as a target for the needle-tip in administering a pudendal nerve block. Synonym: spina ischiadica, ischiadic spine, sciatic spine.
