Hip (Coxal) Joint

By: Hadil A. Elsayed

Hip Joint
• Type: Multiaxial ball-and-socket synovial joint • Articulation: The Hip Joint articulates between the hemispherical head of the femur and the cup-shaped acetabulum of the hip bone

Bones of the Hip Joint
 Femur
       Femoral Head Femoral Neck Greater Trochanter Lesser Trochanter Intertrochanteric Crest Intertrochanteric Line Gluteal Tuberosity


• Is the large cup-shaped cavity or socket on the lateral aspect of the hip bone • Articulates with the head of the femur to form the hip joint • The Ilium, Ischium, and Pubis join to form the acetabulum

Bones of the Hip Joint
 Pelvic Girdle
 Acetabulum  3 bones fused together
• Ilium • Ischium • Pubis

– – – – – – – – Iliac fossa Iliac Crest Iliac Tuberosity ASIS AIIS PSIS PIIS Gluteal Lines

– – – – Ramus of ishium Ischial tuberosity Ischial spine Lesser Sciatic Notch

– – – – – – Superior Ramus of Pubis Inferior Ramus of Pubis Pubic Crest Pubic Tubercle Pectin Symphyseal Surface

Ligaments of the Hip Joint

Ligaments of the Hip Joint
• • • • • Iliofemoral Ligament Ischiofemoral ligament Pubofemoral ligament Ligamentun teres capitis femoris Transverse acetabular ligament

Illiofemoral ligament
-Also known as the Y ligament -Runs from the base of the AIIS to the intertrochantic line -Reinforces the fibrous capsule anteriorly -Strongest ligament in the hip -Prevents hyperextension of the hip during standing by screwing the femoral head into the acetabulum

Pubofemoral ligament
-Runs from the anterior pubis ramus to the anterior surface of the intertrochantic fossa -Reinforces the fibrous capsule inferiorly and anteriorly -Tighten during abduction and extension -Prevents overabduction of the hip joint

Ischiofemoral ligament
-The ischial portion of the acetabulum and spirals to the neck of the femur and base of the greater trochanter -Prevents hyperextension of the hip -Fibers relaxed during flexion

Ligamentum teres
• Known also as the ligament of the head of the femur • Attaches to the acetabular notch and the transverse acetabular ligament to the pit in the head of the femur • Weak • Supplies the blood for the femur head

Transverse acetabular ligament
• A fibrous band that bridges the acetabular notch and converts it into a foramen • Through it the nutrients vessels enter the joint

Hip Muscles
– Rectus Femoris – Sartorius – Iliopsoas Muscle Group
• Iliacus • Psoas Major

Hip Muscles
– – – – Semimembranosus Semitendinosus Biceps Femoris Gluteus Maximus

Hip Muscles
– – – – – Adductor Brevis Adductor Longus Adductor Magnus Pectineus Gracilus

Hip Muscles
 Lateral
• Gluteus Medius -Gluteus Minimus -Tensor Fascia Lata -Six Intrinsic External Rotators • Periformis • Quadratus Femoris • Obturator Internus • Obturator Externus • Gemellua Superior • Gemellus Inferior

Movement of the Hip Joint
• Flexion
-Ilioposeas -Rectus femoris -Sartorius -Adductor muscles

• Extension
-Gluteus maximus -Hamstring ms.

• Lateral rotation:
-Pirifomis -Obturator internus and externu -superior and inferior gemelli -quadratus femoris -Gluteus maximus

Movement of the Hip Joint
• Abduction:
-Gluteus medius -Gluteus minimus -Sartorius -Tensor fasciae latae -Piriformis

• Adduction:

-adductor longus -brevise -adductor fibers of the adductor magnus • Medial rotation: -Gluteus medius -Gluteus minimus -tensor fasciae latae


Dislocation of the Hip (Traumatic or Congenital)
• Femoral head moves out of the acetabulum • Usually it goes posterior into notch • Position: typically flexion, adduction, and internal rotation • Common mechanism: knee to dashboard during traffic collision • Signs and symptoms: extreme pain, obvious deformity, unwilling to move the extremity

Hip Joint Stability and Trendelenburg’s Sign
The Stability of the hip Joint depends on: I. The Gluteus medius and minimus must be functioning normally II. The head of the femu must be located normally within the accetabulum III. The neck of the femur must be intact and must have a normal angle with the shaft of the femur

Hip Joint Stability and Trendelenburg’s Sign
• If any of the factors mentioned is defective, the pelvis will sink downward on the opposite, unsupported side. Then pt. then is said to exhibit a positive Trendelenburg’s Sign

Hip Joint Stability and Trendelenburg’s Sign

Arthritis of the Hip Joint (Osteoarthritis)

Arthritis of the Hip Joint (Osteoarthritis)
 Most common disease of the Hip joint in Adults  Signs & Symptoms: pain, stiffness, and deformity o Pain: maybe in the hip joint itself or referred to the knee o Stiffness: caused by the pain and refelx spasm of the surrounding ms. o Deformaty: flextion, adduction, and external rotation. Produced by ms. Spasm and later by ms. Contracture.
