A Prospective Study to Assess the Proximal and Distal Dimensions of Tibia and Its Correlation with Length of Tibia: An Institutional Based Study
Keywords:Tibia, Proximal, Distal.
Background: Tibia is a long bone of the leg which lies medial to fibula and is exceeded in length only by femur. The present study was undertaken for assessing the Proximal and Distal Dimensions of Tibia and Its Correlation with Length of Tibia.Materials & Methods: A total of 40 dry and processed tibias, irrespective of side, grossly normal and complete were obtained. Using a vernier caliper, measurements were taken on the bone. The length of tibia was defined as the vertical distance from the superior point on the medial tibial condyle to the inferior point on the medial malleolus. The following measurements were taken on the fibular incisura: Width of the fibular incisura, Depth of the fibular incisura, Height of the fibular incisura, Medial malleolus, Breadth of medial malleolus, Width of the tibial plafond, and Length of the tibial plafond.
Results: A total of 40 Tibial specimens were analyzed. While analyzing the results through Pearson’s correlation, it was seen that length of tibia was significantly correlated with depth of fibula incisura of both distal ad proximal tibia. Conclusion: From the above results, authors concluded that length of tibia was significantly correlated with depth of fibula incisura of both distal ad proximal tibia.
