Pelvic Diaphragm

  • Philip Thorek


The muscles within the true pelvis may be considered in 2 groups: (1) 2 muscles which together form the pelvic diaphragm and are associated with the pelvic viscera (levator ani and coccygeus) and (2) 2 muscles which are associated with the lower extremity but arise in the pelvis (obturator internus and piriformis).
