Avascular Necrosis of Femoral Head : About the Femoral Head and the Hip Joint
Where is the accurate location of the femoral head? Actually, a few guests were very accurate. There were two guests that were rather far off. The heel obviously isn`t where it is. Even knows that there are the knees but there were a few guests who pointed to the front, and to the back, and they are all right.
It`s actually where the torso meet the thigh. So pointing from the front is right and from the rear is right, because it`s in the middle between the torso and the legs. Anyone who pointed in this area is right. Alright, take a seat. We now know where the femoral head is. Next, let`s us our two specialists to tell us about the role that femoral head plays in the body. Femoral head if everyone takes a look at the screen, is an important component in the hip joint.
