Author(s): Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Dr. Rashmi Kumari, Dr. SK Chouhan
Abstract: The morphometry of distal end of radius comprises radial inclination, palmar tilt and radial height. It is important for the management of fracture around wrist in distal end of radius. The goal of our study was to obtain the value of these parameters in adult population in Jharkhand region of India.
Materials and Methods: An Observational Cross Sectional prospective study was done between May 2017 to August 2017 at MGM Medical College Jamshedpur. Total 215 normal X rays were examined AP and Lateral view were used. AP view was used to measure radial inclination and radial height while lateral view was used to measure palmar tilt.
Result: Two hundred and fifteen (n= 215) normal X rays were examined the mean value of radial inclination, palmar tilt and radial height were 23.29±7.4, 10.09±5.23, 11.33±4.7 mm respectively.
Conclusion: Data may be helpful to conduct similar study in other parts of India. Data may be of help during restoration of normal anatomical alignment of distal radial fracture for good functional outcome.
