An In Vivo Comparison of the Orientation of the Transverse Acetabular Ligament and the Acetabulum

Griffin, Andrew R.; Perriman, Diana; Bolton, Claire; Smith, Paul


Aligning the acetabular component with the Transverse Acetabular Ligament (TAL) to ensure optimal anteversion has been reported to reduce dislocation rates. However, to our knowledge in vivo measurement of the TAL angle has not yet been reported in a large cohort of normal hips. CT scans of 218 normal hips were analyzed. The TAL and four acetabular rim anteversion angles were measured (superiorly to inferiorly) relative to the anterior pelvic plane. The mean TAL anteversion angle was 20.5° ±...[Show more]
