Anatomy of the Hip Joint

Get Latest Price

The hip joint is a ball-and-socket type of a joint formed where the thigh meets the pelvis. It consists of a socket called the acetabulum (part of the pelvis) and a ball called the head of femur (which is the top end of the thigh bone). The socket and the head of the femur are covered with covered with a smooth glistening white tissue called the articular cartilage which provides a low friction surface for movement. The joint is encased in a fibrous sheath called the capsule. The capsule has an inner smooth lining called the synovium which produces a lubricating fluid called the synovial fluid. The smooth cartilage along with the synovial fluid allows for frictionless movement at the joint interface. At the edges of the acetabulum is attached a fibro-cartilaginous rim called the acetabular labrum which helps to deepen the socket and adds to the stability of the joint. The joint is further stabilized by ligaments which are present both inside and outside the joint capsule. The hip joint is surrounding by a bulk of muscles which help to move the thigh at the hip joint.

Newer bearing surfaces (articulating interface)
Total hip replacements wear out because of wearing out of the polyethylene (plastic) which is used as a cup in the acetabular socket. Technological advancement has made it possible to design “Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene” which has better wear characteristics, and therefore last longer. There is also an interest in using harder surfaces (like metal-on-metal ceramic-on-ceramic and ceramic-on-metal) as bearing surfaces which have better wear characteristics. Short-term and medium-term studies have shown encouraging results with the use of these materials.

What is total hip replacement?
It is also known as total hip arthroplasty (THA). Hip replacement surgery involves replacing the worn out (diseased and painful) parts of the hip joint with an artificial hip joint implant designed to allow movement and stability close to that of a normal knee.
