  • Together, the acetabulum and the head of the femur form what is known as the hip joint . (wisegeek.com)
  • Sometimes, as part of a condition known as developmental dysplasia of the hip, a baby may be born with an abnormally shaped head of the femur or acetabulum, but the outlook is positive if treatment begins early, using methods which may include a special harness, a positioning cast or surgery. (wisegeek.com)
  • Fractures of the acetabulum generally occur when the ball-shaped head of the femur is driven up through the socket during a fall or as the result of a motor vehicle accident. (wisegeek.com)
  • The head of the femur, shaped like a ball, fits tightly into the acetabulum, forming the ball and socket joint of the hip, allowing the leg to move forward and backward, side to side, and rotate right and left. (smith-nephew.com)

  • The present study aims to evaluate the reliability of the Calce (2012) method for the estimation of age-at-death through acetabulum changes in a sample of Portuguese origin. (springer.com)

  • line
  • Alternatively, you can use the Ranawat method - finds the intersection between Shenton�s line and the ilioischial (�Kocher�) line - the infero-medial acetabulum sits 5 mm medial to this intersection, and the acetabular height is 1/5 the height of the pelvis at this point. (orthonet.on.ca)
  • significant
  • The comparison with previous studies in other populations shows significant inter-population differences in the relationship between the acetabulum variables used by Calce and age-at-death. (springer.com)
  • Development
  • These data suggest that Aaknox1 may have a role during early reproductive development and that mRNA localization may be one mechanism by which A. acetabulum regulates gene expression post-transcriptionally. (deepdyve.com)
