  1. The cartilage of the acetabulum is 'C' shaped with the opening facing downwards (omega shaped). What is the name given to the inferior facing opening?
    A) Acetabular fossa
    B) Fovea fossa
    C) Fovea Capitus
    D) Acetabular notch
    A) Acetabular Fossa

    a = A depressed area in the floor of the acetabulum above the acetabular notch
    b = in the medial part of the rim of the acetabulum
    c =
    d = a fovea on the head of the femur, where the round ligament is attached.
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  2. The acetabular labrum is a fibrocartilagenous structure attached to the periphery of the acetabulum that helps to deepen it and to hold the femoral head in position. It bridges the opening referred to in question one. Here it is called...
    A) Ligament of the head of the femur
    B) Median arcruate ligament
    C) Transverse Acetabular Ligement
    D) Ligament of Bigelow
    C) Transverse acetabular ligament

    b = connects crura of the diaphragm
    d = a band of fibrous tissue connecting bones or cartilages, serving to support and strengthen joints.

  3. The ischiofemoral ligament reinforces the hip joint capsule posteriorly and primarily limits which movement...
    A) Flexion
    B) External rotation
    C) Abduction
    D) Extension
    D) extension

    iliofemoral - Prevents hyperextension of hip; screws the head of the femur into the acetabulum to help strengthen and stabilize the joint; is a Y-shaped ligament that covers most of hte anterior aspect of the coxofemoral joint

    Pubofemoral - checks hyperabduction; aids in preventing hyperextension of hip; strengthens the anterior and inferior parts of the capsule
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  4. Which of the two following motions of the hip is considered to have a range of motion of about 30 degrees?
    a) Adduction
    b) Extension
    c) External rotation
    d) Flexion
  5. Which range of motion of the hip is considered to be the least?
    a) Abduction
    b) Extension
    c) External Rotation
    d) Flexion
  6. Which of the following muscles is not considered to contribute to medial hip rotation?
    A) GMed
    B) TFL
    C) GMax
    D) GMin
    C) Gmax
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  7. Which two of the following are attachment points for the lateral collateral ligament of the knee?
    a) Head of fibula
    b) Lateral femoral epicondyle
    c) Lateral tibial plateau
    d) Lateral lip of the linea aspera
    • a) head of fib
    • b) Lateral femoral epicondyle
  8. Which of the following is false with regard to the medial collateral ligament of the knee?
    A) It is a cord like structure
    B) Deep fibres are firmly attached to the medial meniscous
    C) attaches to the medial tibial condyle
    D) Longer than the lateral collateral ligament
    C) it attaches to the medial femoral condyle
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  9. Which of the following is false with regard to the lateral meniscus of the knee?
    a) Is more circular than the medial meniscus
    b) It is attached via the joint capsule to the lateral collateral ligament
    c) The popliteus has an attachment to it
    d) Helps resist adduction at the knee
  10. Which of the following is true with regard to the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee?
    a) Helps prevent anterior translation of the tibia relative to the femur
    b) Arises from the posterior aspect of the intercondylar region of the tibia
    c) It is stronger than the PCL
    d) Attaches to the inner surface of the medial femoral condyle
    Insertion: Oval shaped area, anterior aspect of the tibial plateau between the tibial eminences
