Background: The present study was conducted for assessing radiographic evaluation of the proximal femoral anatomy.
Materials & methods: A total of 40 males and 40 female subjects were enrolled. Antero-posterior and axial radiographs were evaluated in all the patients. Radiological measurements of proximal femoral geometric parameters were done. Following proximal femoral geometric parameters were assessed: Femoral head diameter (FHD), Femoral neck length (FNL), Neck-shaft angle (FNSA) and Femoral neck anteversion (FNA). All the values obtained were recorded and compared among males and females. All the results were recorded and analysed using SPSS software.
Results: Non-significant results were obtained while comparing the femoral neck variables among males and females. However; femoral head diameter was significantly among males in comparison to females.
Conclusion: There exits high diversity in the morphology of the femur on the geographic regions of the same population. Our results will improve understanding of femur morphology and might help to choose implant in correspondence with the anatomy of the hip.
