Description

This is a fibrous continuation of the acetabular labrum that is completely collagenous and contains no chondrocytes or cartilage. It crosses the acetabular notch and binds the ends of the cartilaginous labrum. As it crosses the notch it leaves a small gap between it and the rim of the acetabulum that allows vessels to access the joint.

Function

Helps deepen and constrict the acetabular cavity.
