Hip, or hep, is also American slang, an adjective meaning "fashionably current." African-Americans introduced this use of the word into the English lexicon, which is surmised to have its origin in the Wolof "hepi" or "hipi," which means "to open one's eyes" or otherwise be aware of what is going on. See also hipster.
The GreaterTrochanter (trochanter major; great trochanter) is a large, irregular, quadrilateral eminence, situated at the junction of the neck with the upper part of the body.
Running obliquely downward and medialward from the summit of the greatertrochanter on the posterior surface of the neck is a prominent ridge, the intertrochanteric crest.
The other two borders of the femur are only slightly marked: the lateral border extends from the antero-inferior angle of the greatertrochanter to the anterior extremity of the lateral condyle; the medial border from the intertrochanteric line, at a point opposite the lesser trochanter, to the anterior extremity of the medial condyle.
The greatertrochanter is re-attached by forming a pair of holes through the greatertrochanter and, if necessary, through adjacent parts of the femur, inserting a U-bolt through the holes in the greatertrochanter, the U-bolt passing through the hole in the stem, and pressing the greatertrochanter against adjacent parts of the femur.
The prosthesis of claim 2, wherein the width of the stem initially increases as the stem extends away from the neck and towards the hole, providing a region of greatest width approximately in the vicinity of the hole whereby likelihood of stem fracture in the region of the hole is reduced.
Once the greatertrochanter 60 has been re-located at location 62, the trochanter clamps 46 are fitted onto the limbs 44 and the nuts 54 are screwed along the limbs to press the clamps against the greatertrochanter, forcing the claws 52 into the greatertrochanter.
