Abstract :

 Introduction: The clavicle is (collar Bone) a typical long bone of upper limb which extends from the root of the neck to the shoulder, which lies horizontally.

Aim: The purpose of the study was to measure curves, the medial and lateral angels in  dry  fully ossified  macerated clavicle  bones.

Materials and Methods: The present study was carried out on 100 dry fully ossified macerated clavicles (50 male & 50 female). The results obtained were statistically analyzed.

Results: In the present study, the average medial angle was found to be 143.68    6.17  &153.72    4.46  of right & left side of male respectively and 152  5.66  & 150.68  3.72 of right & left of female respectively. The lateral angle was found to be 139.24  5.38 and 150.04   4.43 of  right & left side of  male respectively and  148.48   9.32  & 149.72  3.88 of  right and left side of female respectively.   

Conclusion: Any increase or decrease in the both angles of the both sexes of the both sides associated with clinical conditions i.e. osteoporosis, fracture deformities etc. The present study will be useful for various orthopedic procedures and diagnoses, in the fields of general human osteology and forensic anthropology.
