Study of Squatting Facets in Tibia and Talus in South Indian Population

Dr. Shishirkumar, Dr. Satheesha Nambiar, Dr. Arunachalam Kumar


Abstract: Indians are known to be habitual squatters and also formation of squatting facets depends on the life style activities. There may be a drastic difference in the formation of squatting facets when compared to the previous studies. Also study is important for ankle reconstruction surgeries designed specifically for south Indian population considering the different life style activities. This study is done using 100 Tali (50 right sides and 50 Left sides) and 100 Tibiae (50 right sides and 50 Left sides). In tali squatting facets are present in thirty percent irrespective of the side. In tibiae the percentage of presence of squatting facets is 36.66 percent. There is a decline in the number of squatting facets when compared to the other studies. Multiple factors may contribute for the formation of squatting facets. And this difference may be because of study in different population; or difference in life style.
