The purpose of this study was to elucidate the structural and steric microstructural characteristics of the labrum acetabula and physiologic significance on hip-joint function by electron microscope. Acetabular specimens were taken from 18 monkeys and 26 humans and divided into three layers under a microscope. We found the most superficial layer was a thin membrane of fibernet made of collagen fibrils. The second, or superficial layer, had a stratiform structure 20 micron to 100 micron in… CONTINUE READING
