Lesser sciatic foramen

Other Terms: Foramen sciaticum (ischiadicum) minus, Foramen ischiadicum minus, Petite ouverture ischiatique

Description

The lesser sciatic foramen results when the sacrospinous and sacrotuberous ligaments close off the open border of the lesser sciatic notch to create a small passageway from the pelvis to the gluteal region. This foramen provides passage for the obturator internus tendon and nerve and the internal pudendal vessels and pudendal nerve.
