e.g. Het heupgewricht wordt gevormd door de heupkom (acetabulum) en de heupkop (caput femoris). De heupkom is een onderdeel van het bekken en de heupkop is een onderdeel van het dijbeen (femur).
De heupkop is via de collum (nek) verbonden met de schacht van het dijbeen. Het heupgewricht vormt de schakel tussen het bekken en het bovenbeen.
