Abstract

Ankle is one of the most commonly injured joint so, for its reconstruction surgeries and in the manufacture of its implants various dimensions of lower articulating end of tibia and fibula are needed. So, this study was done to measure various dimensions of distal articulating end of tibia and fibula. 48 adult fully ossified dry tibias and 36 fibulae were taken and various measurements of the distal end of both tibia and fibulae were measured using vernier caliper. Statistical analysis of the parameters was done. The total (right + left) mean values of the length of the tibial plafond on the medial, central and lateral part are 2.51, 2.74 and 2.73cm. The total mean values of the width of tibial plafond on the anterior, central and posterior part are 1.61, 1.73 and 1.99cm. The total mean measurements of medial length, lateral length and the width of the medial malleolus are 1.32, 2.38 and 2.29 cm. The mean and standard deviation of all the parameters of right, left fibula is shown in Table 2. The total mean v lue of the length and width of tibial facet of fibula is 2.04 and 1.65cm. There was no statistical significance in any parameter of right and left side as P value in all was >0.05. The results of this study will be useful for Orthopaedic surgeons while making implants for the lower end of tibia and fibula.
