THE MORPHOLOGICAL ASPECT OF HIP JOINT CAPSULE, LIGAMENT AND ACETABULAR LABRUM IN FETUSES (Abstract): The acetabulofemoral joint is a synovial joint with three degrees of freedom, based on it’s spheroidal shape (ball and socket). It involves acetabulum and the femoral head. Although, the femoral head is contained within the acetabulum almost half, the grip of the ball is extended by the acetabular labrum. In embryofetal period, in development of the hip join, the acetabulum and the labrum gradually extends beyond femoral head’s equator. At fetuses between 18 and 34 weeks, the morphology of the acetabulum, of the femoral head, the hip joint capsule and surrounding extracapsular and intr acapsular ligaments are presented by dissection. The shape of ligament of femoral head is then described with it’s variation, and also the acetabular notch.
