{1} noted two different morphologies for the insertion of the gluteus minimus to the greater trochanter:

Two morphologies noted: The majority (11/14) were long, thin, and crescent shaped and ran medial to lateral and concave facing inferiorly, while a few (3/14) were bowtie in shape. [quote from Table 1 below from {1}]

Does the morphology of the insertion of the gluteus minimus to the greater trochanter impact the likelihood of the gluteus minimus being affected by a tendinopathy?

    Good question. I’m finding references about variants of other aspects of hip anatomy giving rise to tindinopathy and hip pain, but I haven’t found much relating to variations in the gluteus minimus insertion footprint. I’ll keep looking! :) – Chris May 20 '19 at 17:18
