Anthropometric Analysis of Talocrural Joint Based On Radiological Study in South Indian Population

Dr. Shishirkumar [24] | Dr. Satheesha Nambiar [5]


Abstract: The ankle joint is one of the most frequently injured joint1. The lateral ligament is injured more often when compared to medial. The strong eversion pull on the deltoid ligament causes transverse fracture of medial malleolus. If the tibia is carried anteriorly, the posterior margin of the distal end of the tibia is also broken by the talus producing a trimalleolar fracture. Conventionally X-ray techniques have been used to diagnose ligament injuries. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging has opened new horizons in the diagnosis and treatment of many musculoskeletal diseases of the ankle and foot. It demonstrates abnormalities in the bones and soft tissues before they become evident at other imaging modalities. But in the present scenario in our country MRI scanning is not available commonly and if available it is very expensive and the procedure is time consuming. So the present study emphasizes on diagnosis of sprains using the common x-rays which are available locally and are easily affordable.
