Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In the past few decades, researchers worldwide have used various methods to measure the bones. They have measured mechanically on the cadaveric bone as well as in patients by Ultrasound, Computerised tomography and Magnetic resonance imaging. Earlier studies revealed that the measurements vary in population and the methods adopted. AIM OF THE STUDY: To identify the difference between the right and the left femur. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was conducted with 90 (45 right and 45 left) femora of both sides from the department of Anatomy. Six parameters were measured and subjected to statistics. RESULTS: The mean value of neck shaft angle on right and left side was 127.20+/-2.430 and 126.16+/-4.220. The mean value of head transverse diameter on right and left side was 33.88+/-2.46 and 33.31+/-3.79. The mean value of neck transverse diameter on right and left side was 18.11+/-2.00 and 17.49+/-2.09. The mean value of head vertical diameter on right and left side was 32.87+/-2.53 and 32.12+/-2.00. The mean value of neck vertical diameter on right and left side was 25.72+/-3.31 and 24.52+/-3.27. The mean value of proximal breadth on right and left side was 79.04+/-7.21 and 78.03+/-5.71. The values obtained on right and left sides of femur was statistically insignificant (p > 0.05). CONCLUSION: The study concluded that there is no significant difference between the values obtained on the right and the left femora. The mean values of each parameter will enlighten the biomechanical engineering to take a revolutionary step towards altering implant designs to suit our needs.
