• cartilage
  • The acetabulum is lined with cartilage, which cushions the bones during weightbearing activities and allows the joint to rotate smoothly and freely in all planes of movement with minimal friction. (smith-nephew.com)
  • They join each other in a Y-shaped portion of cartilage in the acetabulum. (wikipedia.org)
  • About the thirteenth or fourteenth year, the three primary centers have extended their growth into the bottom of the acetabulum, and are there separated from each other by a Y-shaped portion of cartilage, which now presents traces of ossification, often by two or more centers. (wikipedia.org)
  • ischium
  • Contributing a little more than two-fifths of the structure is the ischium, which provides lower and side boundaries to the acetabulum. (wikipedia.org)
  • At birth, the three primary centers are quite separate, the crest, the bottom of the acetabulum, the ischial tuberosity, and the inferior rami of the ischium and pubis being still cartilaginous. (wikipedia.org)
  • vinegar cup

  • bone
  • However, functionally significant heterotopic ossification with associated late bone defects in the posterior wall of the acetabulum is rare and challenging to treat. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Although surgical excision of heterotopic ossification has been reported with satisfactory results [ 4 , 5 ], the management of disabling HO with associated bone defects in the posterior wall of the acetabulum is a challenge for surgeons and has not been reported to the best of our knowledge.

  • pelvic
  • The pubic branches supply the pelvic surface of the acetabulum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Texasetes pleurohalio), an imperforate acetabulum is present, which is not an opening, but instead resembles a shallow concave depression on each side of the pelvic girdle. (wikipedia.org)
  • All motorcycle collision patients presenting with pelvic ring injuries or acetabulum fractures should be worked up for possible testicular dislocation with a scrotal exam. (hindawi.com)
  • orientation
  • The orientation and position of the acetabulum is one of the main morphological traits that caused dinosaurs to walk in an upright posture with their legs directly underneath their bodies. (wikipedia.org)
