Anatomical terminology

The anterior sacrococcygeal ligament or ventral sacrococcygeal ligament consists of a few irregular fibers, which descend from the anterior surface of the sacrum to the front of the coccyx, blending with the periosteum.[1]

This short[2] ligament forms the continuation of the anterior longitudinal ligament and stretches over the sacrococcygeal symphysis.[3][4][5]
