Acetabular notch

Last revised by Dr Daniel J Bell on 17 Jun 2019

The acetabular notch is a depression in the margin of the acetabulum located anteroinferiorly. It is bridged by the transverse ligament, and thus forms the acetabular foramen. The ligamentum teres has part of its origin from the acetabular notch.
