This is the normal right hip model of an 82-year-old male. This is an STL file created from DICOM images of his CT scan which may be used for 3D printing.
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint that has intrinsic stability from osseous, ligamentous, and muscular structures. The hip capsule is made of the iliofemoral, pubofemoral, and ischiofemoral ligaments which attach from the acetabulum to the femoral neck. The normal acetabulum is anteverted 15 degrees and abducted 45 degrees. The normal femoral anteversion is between 10-15 degrees. The proximal femur also includes the greater trochanter, to which the external rotators are attached, and the lesser trochanter, to which the iliopsoas is attached.
This model was created from the file STS_013.
