MORPHOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE TIBIAL TUBEROSITY IN THE POPULATION OF SOUTH KARNATAKA, INDIA
Author: Rashmi Bhat, Ramya Rathan, Neha Samapriya, Shakuntala Pai
Objective: To estimate the prevalence of various morphological types of Tibial Tuberosity and to determine the side and gender differences.
Methods: 170 randomly collected tibiae of unknown sex were analysed to evaluate the shapes and the gender differences in the tibia. The prominence of the Tibial Tuberosity and the gender differences of the bone was determined
Results: Type 2 TT was the most common type seen in 34% bones followed by type 3 in 17% of the bones. Type 2 TT was the most common type seen on right side (31%) as well as on the left side (39%). Type 2 was the most common type of TT seen in both males (32%) and females (35%).
Conclusion: The present study shows variations in shape may be due to developmental reasons. There were no statistical differences in the side and gender differences. The knowledge of the present study will help further researchers in evaluating anterior knee pain syndromes.
