Microanatomy of the acetabular cavity and its relation to growth.
The anatomy and development of the growing acetabulum are not clearly understood. We dissected and studied histologically two acetabula from the pelvis of a three-month-old infant. Relative rates of growth at the different growth plates were assessed by comparing the height of the proliferative layer with that of the hypertrophic layer.
