Aspiration of the Hip Joint Wheeless

anterior approach:
- femoral artery may be palpated in femoral triangle, & may be used as a guide in aspirating the hip joint;
- palpate the femoral pulse just as it exits the inguinal ligament;
- entry point is one inch lateral to the artery (at the inguinal ligament) and one inch below the inguinal ligament;
- going lateral 1 inch will also make entry site approx 1 in below ligament;
- needle entry is then straight down into the lateral half of the joint cavity;
