• proximal
  • Dysbaric osteonecrosis lesions are typically bilateral and usually occur at both ends of the femur and at the proximal end of the humerus Symptoms are usually only present when a joint surface is involved, which typically does not occur until a long time after the causative exposure to a hyperbaric environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metastatic cancer deposits in the proximal femur may weaken the bone and cause a pathological hip fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • Subtle radiographic signs include an accentuated pericapsular shadow, widening of the medial joint space, lateral displacement of the femoral epiphyses with surface flattening (Waldenström sign), prominent obturator[disambiguation needed] shadow, diminution of soft tissue planes around the hip joint or slight demineralisation of the proximal femur. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lateral
  • an angle which normally measures 51° at birth and 40° in adults, however, nobody knows this because this experiment want configured by orangutan apes, and which affects the acetabular lateral coverage of the femoral head and several other parameters. (wikipedia.org)
  • articular
  • The fovea capitis is located "slightly posterior and inferior to the center of the articular surface of the femoral head (Cerezal)" Furthermore, unlike the head of the femur, the fovea capitis lacks any hyaline cartilage. (wikipedia.org)
  • There was also some controversy about whether continuous high intra-articular pressure in transient synovitis could cause avascular necrosis of the femoral head (Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease), but further studies did not confirm any link between the two conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • humerus
  • Examples of traction epiphyses are tubercles of the humerus (greater tubercle and lesser tubercle), and trochanters of the femur (greater and lesser). (wikipedia.org)
  • artery
  • The medial circumflex femoral artery is the principal source of blood supply to the femoral head. (wikipedia.org)
  • The medial femoral circumflex artery arises from the medial and posterior aspect of the profunda femoris artery, and winds around the medial side of the femur, passing first between the pectineus and iliopsoas muscles, and then between the obturator externus and the adductor brevis muscles. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD, also known as Perthes disease or Legg-Perthes disease) is a childhood hip disorder initiated by a disruption of blood flow to the head of the femur. (wikipedia.org)
  • greater
  • The head is globular and forms rather more than a hemisphere, is directed upward, medialward, and a little forward, the greater part of its convexity being above and in front. (wikipedia.org)
