Dr. Birendra Kumar Sinha, Dr. Rashmi Prasad

The present study was planned to evaluate the morphometric study of upper end of tibia. The data generated from the present study will be helpful in the exact measurements of upper end of tibia gender wise before the knee replacement surgeries. The present study was conducted on 50 adult dry tibias of both sexes, obtained from the Anatomy department of Patna Medical College, Patna. Out of total 50 selected tibias 25 were males and 25 were females identified from the record available in department of Anatomy. All bones were on gross examination were fully ossified and had no evidence of fractures or congenital or pathological anomalies. The bones were measured with sliding calliper.
