1

The hip joint is the articulation between the __________________________ and the ____________________ of the hip (coxal) bone).

femoral head

acetabulum

2

The hip is what kind of joint?

ball and socket

3

What movements can the hip do?

1. flexion/extension 2. ABduction/ADduction 3. medial (internal) / lateral (external) rotation 4. circumduction

4

Fibrous capsule that is attached proximally to the margin of the acetabulum and to the transverse acetabular ligament; distally it is attached to the intertrochanteric line; posteriorly it crosses the neck proximal to the intertrochanteric crest but is not attached to it

articular capsule

5

Ligament reinforcing articular capsule: ligament runs from the AIIS to the intertrochanteric line on the anterior femur *prevents _____________

iliofemoral ligament *hyperextension

6

Ligament reinforcing articular capsule: ligament runs from behind the acetabulum, spirals up and around the femoral neck and blends with the superior fibers of the ligament

ischiofemoral ligament

7

Ligament reinforcing articular capsule: ligament runs from the pubis in front of acetabulum and blends with fibers of (a) to attach to femur.

pubofemoral ligament

8

Ischiofemoral ligament: It tightens in __________________and also increases hip stability by pulling femoral head deeply into the acetabulum.

extension

9

pubofemoral ligament: It limits ____________.

ABduction

10

Ligament from acetabulum to fovea capitis

ligament of the head of the femur

11

ligament of the head of the femur is also called _____ ______ OR _______ _______ ________.

ligamentum teres OR ligamentum capitis femoris

12

Complete fibrocartilaginous rim that deepens the articular socket

labrum

13

Primary blood supply to head of femur

ascending branch of the medial femoral circumflex artery (mfca)

14

Secondary blood supply to head of femur

ascending branches of the lateral femoral circumflex artery (lfca)

15

Tertiary blood supply to head of femur

small branch of obturator artery, artery of the ligament of the head of femur

16

Hip is innervated by branches of ______, ______, _________, and _______ nerves.

femoral obturator superior gluteal quadratus femoris

17

Fibrocartilaginous union of right and left pubic bones by the interpubic disc. The joint is reinforced by ligaments both superiorly & inferiorly.
