Synovitis & Osteoarthritis of the Hip


 

The synovium is the capsular lining of the joint that produces joint lubricating fluid. (see hip anatomy)

Articular cartilage lines the femoral head (ball) and acetabulum (socket) of the hip joint to cushion and allow them to move against each other without causing damage. (see hip anatomy)
