Internal snapping hip
, or internal coxa saltans, results from snapping of the iliopsoas tendon over prominent anterior structures, often the iliopectineal eminence.
(2,3,4,5) Pathology related to the iliopsoas tendon is most often implicated as the source of the internal snapping hip
. The snapping is as a result of the iliopsoas tendon snapping over structures just deep to it that may include the femoral head, iliopectineal eminence, and lesser trochanter.
