The acetabular notch is a deep[citation needed] notch in the inferior portion of the rim of the acetabulum.: 1354  It is bridged by the transverse acetabular ligament, converting it into a foramen (through which nerves and vessels (including the acetabular notch of obturator artery: 1250 ) pass into the hip joint cavity).: 1368  It is continuous with space of the acetabular fossa. The lunate surface of acetabulum is discontinued opposite the notch.: 1368
