A Study on Anthropometric Measurements of Lower end of Indian Femora
Anthropometric measurements of Lower end of Indian Femora
Background: The knee joint is a complex, compound synovial joint, providing hinge movements useful to give stability and support to body weight. Common knee problems happen due to injuries and diseases of the knee. To the best of my knowledge, the anthropometric measurement on the lower end of the femur is not available for Madhya Pradesh population. The present study aims to measure various parameters of femoral condyles and intercondylar area which would be useful in the placement of the femoral compartment of knee prosthesis. Subjects and Methods: To conduct the Present study a total of 65 human dried femora were measured in the department of Anatomy, IMCH & RC, Indore, MP. Parameters & measurements recorded at the lower end of the femur were Anteroposterior & transverse diameters of medial and lateral condyles, intercondylar notch depth, width & bicondylar width. Results will be analyzed with the help of statistical calculations. Conclusion The present study may be useful to orthopeditians and surgeons to select the accurate size of the prosthesis during knee arthroplasty surgeries.
