Hemorrhages were found beneath the periosteum in the region of the lower incisor teeth and the acetabulum and ribs.
The large, round head of this bone is placed in the acetabulum.
In the pelvis the acetabulum is perforate (in Echidna), as in Sauropsida.
The acute character of the lameness will vary in degree as the seat of the lesion approximates the acetabulum.
The obturator foramen is a small oval opening posteroventral to the acetabulum between the ischium and the pubis.
A less formidable proceeding may be useful in cases where the acetabulum is diseased, but not deeply.
All except the epipubis take part in the formation of the acetabulum, which is perforated by a prominent hole.
Fracture of the upper and back part of the rim of the acetabulum may accompany or simulate dorsal dislocation of the hip.
The femur (fig. 40, B, 12) is a short thick bone, with a prominent rounded head articulating with the acetabulum.
The broadening of the trochanteric region is greater, and the great trochanter is approximated to the acetabulum.
acetabulum ac·e·tab·u·lum (ās'ĭ-tāb'yə-ləm)
n. pl. ac·e·tab·u·la (-lə)
The cup-shaped cavity at the base of the hipbone into which the ball-shaped head of the femur fits. Also called cotyloid cavity.
