1. At necropsy the arterial distribution within the head and neck of the femur was investigated by arteriographic injection in fifty-seven uninjured hips of mostly elderly subjects. 2. Before injection all vessels to the head except for one or more particular groups were divided. 3. The superior retinacular arteries were found to be the most important arterial supply to the head. Through the widely distributed branches of their lateral epiphysial vessels ( superior capital ) they supplied the… Expand
