Pelvis shape type as shown in the photograph is ?
Pelvis shape type as shown in the photograph above represents Platypelloid.
- Platypelloid pelvis is has narrow anterio-posterior diameter of pelvic inlet. The pelvic inlet is specifically kidney shaped. The pelvic cavity is usually shallow and diameters of outlet are favorable for the process of labor.
- But platypelloid pelvis don’t allow the head to engage with ease. But if the head manage to engage then rest of the process of labor may occur normally but in most of the cases it is longer as compared to progress of labor in case of gynaecoid pelvis.
