Hip Ligaments Stack #111523

LigamentPosition around hip jointAttachmentsLimits what movement ?
Iliofemoral ligament Anterior (appears Y-shaped) Apex arises on ilium between AIIS and iliopubic eminence. Base attaches to superior and inferior sections of the Intertrochanteric Line. Hip extension Lateral rotation (lateral fibres) Hip adduction (lateral fibres)
Pubofemoral ligament AnteroInferior to joint Runs betwen pubic bone to Lesser Trochanter Hip abduction
Ischiofemoral ligament Posterior to joint Springs from the ischium (below the acetabulum), passing upwards and laterally to blend with the posterior part of the joint capsule. Medial hip rotation
Transverse acetabular ligament Within the acetabulum. Bridges the acetabular notch. Completes the rim of the acetabulum by bridging the acetabular notch, thus converting it into a foramen. Vessels and nerves thus enter the joint.
Ligamentum Teres Deep within the joint at the head of the femur. One end is implanted into the fovea, the other attaches to the margins of the acetabular notch, the transverse ligament. Attaches acetabulum to Fovea of head of femur. -
