A. HIP joint
D. Ankle joint
TIPSImportant Question from NEET PG
Shenton’s line is a curved line formed by the top of the obturator foramen and the inner side of the neck of the femur. Interruption of this line suggests an abnormally positioned femoral head.
- In patients with fracture of neck of femur, the limb is externally rotated, abducted and shortened.
- In inferior dislocation of hip joint, the hip is abducted, externally rotated, and flexed at the time of injury.
- In superior dislocation of hip joint, the hip is abducted, externally rotated, and extended.
- Hip dislocation should be reduced within 6 hours because delays in reduction correspond with a higher incidence of avascular necrosis.
