The acetabular labrum is completed below by the _________ _________ligament which bridges the acetabular ______
The articular cartilage on the acetabulum is an incomplete __________shaped marginal ring.
The head of the femur is covered by articular cartilage except for the area of the _____ ______ ______ where the ligamentum teres femoris of the femur is attached. (This is a triangular band of synovial membrane)
fovea capitis femoris
The strong dense articular capsule is further strengthened by all the following ligaments:( Give stability to hip joint and prevents it from slipping out)
Iliofemoral ligament ---(ligament of Bigelow) Y-shaped, allows leaning back, conserve muscular activity.
Pubofemoral ligament---(from pubic bone)
Ischiofemoral ligament---deeply placed (posterior view)
Ligament of the Head of femur ---Ligamentum Teres Femoris attach head of femur to acetabulm.
The Ischiofemoral ligament encircle the neck of femur in place. Some of its fibers wrap tightly around head of femur and is called?
All of the following supply nerve to the hip joint:
Superior gluteal n.---L4, L5, S1
Nerve to Quadriceps Femoris --L4,L5,S1
Accessory obturator nerve (when present)
Pain in the hip can be misleading because it is often from the _________.
Vertebral column- around L3,L4 at the back
All of the following are blood supply of the hip joint:
Obturator a. via its acetabular branch
Inferior Gluteal a.
Medial circumflex a.
Lateral circumflex a.
All of the following are the actions of the hip joint:
Dislocation of the hip joint is rare because?
Ball and socket joint
Strong tough articular capsule

Fracture of the neck of femur has the following characteristics:
seen in older women (post menapause, over age of 60)
common in females than males
20 weeks healing
When the vessels are damaged during fracture of the neck of femur it leads to what clinical condition?
All of the ollowing are characteristics of Congenital hip dislocation:
more common in females
head of femur slip on the gluteal surface of ilium
why? Upper lip of acetabulum labrum is not fully developed
A cast or traction is necessary to restrict movement and allow healing
The normal angle of inclination of the femur bone is between 120-135, average 125 degrees. T/F-
When the angle of inclination of the neck of the femur bone is LESSER than 120 degrees, forces the distal part of femur together giving knock knee. This condition is called?
Coxa Vara -<120 degrees
When the angle of inclination of the neck of the femur is GREATER than 135degrees, causes distal part of the femur to move apart giving bow legs. Name the condition?
Coxa Valga > 135 degrees

Ball and Socket joint -(Spheroid joint)
What is the name of a joint that has oval shaped condyle fits into an elliptical cavity and where is it found?-
Ellipsoidal joint (Condyle joint)
What is the name of a joint that its articulating surface is usually flat; between navicular and cuneiforms of tarsus (ankle).
