We classify, up to isometry, all tetrahedra in hyperbolic space with one or more vertices truncated, for which the dihedral angles along the edges formed by the truncations are all $pi/2$, and those remaining are all submultiples of $pi$. We show how to find the volumes of these polyhedra, and find presentations and small generating sets for the orientation-preserving subgroups of their reflection groups. For particular families of these groups, we find low index torsion free subgroups, and construct associated manifolds and manifolds with boundary. In particular, for each $g geq 2$, we find a sequence of hyperbolic manifolds with totally geodesic boundary of genus $g$, which we conjecture to be of least volume among such manifolds. |
