2020, Volume 7, Issue 10, Pages 3841-3848
AbstractIntroduction- Various shapes of coronoid process have been described, they are triangular, rounded and hook. Aim-To find the proportion of different morphological types of coronoid processes. Materials and methods- 90 dry human mandibles (180 sides) were used for the study. The mandibles belonging to Department of Anatomy and Department of Forensic Medicine, Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhubaneswar was utilized for the study. Results- The most common type of coronoid process present was triangular (40.55%), followed by hooked shape (31.67%) and least common was round shaped (27.78%). Conclusion- The knowledge of the different morphological type of coronoid process is useful for anatomists, maxillofacial surgeons, reconstructive surgery, anthropologists and forensic experts.
