Kivlan BR et al. – The ligamentum teres formed a “sling–like” structure to support the femoral head inferiorly as the hip joint was moved into a combined position of flexion and abduction that resembled a squat position. The results help to define a possible role of the ligamentum teres in hip joint stability and possible mechanisms of injury.
