Effects of hip joint position and intra-capsular volume on hip joint intra-capsular pressure: a human cadaveric model

Abstract

BACKGROUND Increase in hip intra-capsular pressure has been implicated in various hip pathologies, such as avascular necrosis complicating undisplaced femoral neck fracture. Our study aimed at documenting the relationship between intra-capsular volume and pressure in various hip positions. METHODS Fifty-two cadaveric hips were studied. An electronic… (More)
