Introduction: The identification of sex from skeletal remains of great medico-legal and
anthropological importance. Hip bone in this feature plays a very important role, especially
its large sciatic notch that can be detected early in embryonic development.
Materials and method: It's a cross-sectional investigation.
Results: In our study mean value of width was found as 4.49+0.44 in male while in female it
was 4.84+ 0.48. Mean depth of the sciatic notch was found as 2.78+0.38 in male and 2.96+
0.39 in female.
Conclusion: The sciatic notch was found deeper in males compared to females. Higher
reference value compared to female.

Surgical procedure of the acetabulum especially in total hip arthroplasty it is necessary to evaluate the diameter of the acetabulum as a part of the pre-operative planning in order to estimate the size of the acetabular cup. The purpose of this study was to determine the sex from the acetabulum by using various parameters such as Maximum depth, Maximum transverse diameter, articular and non-articular surface. Before measuring the side of each hip bone was determined. A total of 100 hip bones were taken and individual parameters were recorded. In our study mean values of all the parameters measured were more in males than female bones. In contrast to studies reported by previous works, in our study we observed statistical correlation between acetabular dimensions chilioticline with maximum depth of acetabulum showed statistical correlation of r=0.42 in female bones. Greater Sciatic Notch with maximum depth of acetabulum showed statistical correlation of r=0.42 in male bones. These measurements are of importance during sex determination in medicolegalcases & also important in making prosthesis for hip arthroplasty.
