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.
