Author(s): Dr. Aloka Sharma, Dr. Rajiv Kumar Lal
Abstract: Introduction: At the proximal end of Femur the Neck-shaft angle and different other parameters of neck are clinically important. In this study we evaluated the normal range of length of anterior and posterior aspect of neck, diameter of head and neck of femur and cross sectional area of neck of adult femur and Neck-shaft angle in south Bihar population. Methodology: Dry adult femur available in the Department of Anatomy, J.L.N.M.C. Bhagalpur, Bihar and also getting from the students of J.L.N.M.C.H. Bhagalpur were used as study sample. Vernier caliper and Goniometer were used to measure all the parameters. Results were analysed by using statistical software. Results: In the present study measurements of different parameters at the proximal end of Femur after statistical analysis are:- Neck-shaft angle 125°, Neck length 29.6mm anteriorly & 31.8mm, posteriorly, diameter of neck 23.5 mm, diameter of head 43.5 mm and cross sectional area 435.25 mm. Conclusion: The output of this study might be helpful for dimension and design of implants at proximal end of femur (Hip replacement therapy) of south Bihar population
