The superior ramus of the pubis is the pubic bone’s section that helps to form the obturator foramen. It reaches to the median plane from the body. Here it merges with its opposite side, the inferior ramus of the pubis. There are two parts of the superior pubic of the ramus: the lateral narrow prismoid part and the medial flattened part.
