MORPHOMETRIC STUDY OF NUTRIENT FORAMINA OF HUMAN RADII � IN TELANGANA REGION

Dr. K. R. S. Prasad Rao, Dr. T. Nava Kalyani

Abstract :

 Present study was to study the number and topographic anatomy of the nutrient foramina in human adult radius bone. The foraminal indexes were also determined.92 dry adult and macerated human radii of unknown sex were selected for study. Total length of the bone and distance of nutrient foramina from its upper end were measured. Number of additional foraminas also noted.Out of 92 human radii, 42 were right sided and 50 were of left side. Single nutrient foramen was present in80 of radii (86.1%) . Double nutrient foramina of the radius were observed in only 8cases (8.6%).no nutrient foramina observed in4 radii (4.3%). In most of the bones, nutrient foramina are located on the anterior surface of the bone. Nutrient foramina are located nearer to the upper end as compared to the lower ends and directed upwards, so lower end of the radius is the growing end. In maximal number bones nutrient foramina present on middle 1/3rd of radii.The present study has provided additional information of foraminal index, number and topography of the nutrient foramina in Radius bones. The anatomical data of this subject is enlightening to the clinician for procedures of bone grafting and various surgical procedures.
