Transverse ligament of the hip

Last revised by Aditya Shetty on 3 Sep 2015

The transverse ligament of the hip bridges the acetabular notch (located anteroinferiorly along the margin of the acetabulum) and joins the two ends of the acetabular labrum, thus forming a complete ring. Beneath it (through the acetabular foramen) pass nutrient vessels which enter the ligamentum teres which arises from the transverse ligament.
