AbstractBackground: Assessment of age-related variation on morphometric dimensions of Proximal Femoral of males in a known population.
Materials & methods: 25 male femur bones were obtained from department of human anatomy. Two study groups were formed- Less than 50 years of age and more than 50 years of age. Complete demographic and clinical data of all the bones was collected from the data record files. Measurements were done and different morphometric parameters were assessed. All the parameters were compared on the basis of age group.
Results: Mean anteroposterior physeal angle in subjects of less than 50 years and more than 50 years of age was 75.16° and 75.26° respectively. Mean lateral physeal angle among subjects of less than 50 years and more than 50 years of age was 82.28° and 82.01° respectively. Mean neck version among subjects of less than 50 years and more than 50 years was 9.77° and 9.59° respectively. Non-significant results were obtained while comparing the morphometric dimension of male’s femur among different age group.
Conclusion: No significant age-related changes in structural components of proximal femur was observed after fourth to fifth decade of life
