|Anatomical terms of bone|
The anterior gluteal line (middle curved line) refers to bony line on the hip bone. It is the longest of the three gluteal lines, begins at the crest, about 4 cm. behind its anterior extremity, and, taking a curved direction downward and backward, ends at the upper part of the greater sciatic notch.
Near the middle of this line a nutrient foramen is often seen.
