A Study on Morphometry of Articular Cartilage of Superior Articulating Surface of Talus

Dr. Shishirkumar, Dr. Satheesha Nambiar


Abstract: Talocrural joint is a major weight bearing joint of the body. The objective of the study is to find the mean measurements of the articular cartilage of the superior articulating surface of talus in south Indian population. Differences between the sides, variations within the same population and comparison of the study with that of the others will be done. The present study was done in the Department of Anatomy, K. S. Hegde Medical Academy Mangalore using 11 specimens. All the measurements were taken using Digital Calipers. There were no significant differences between the right and the left side. There were no significant differences within the population. Articular cartilage of the superior articulating surface of the talus was wider in front and narrows posteriorly. The cartilage was thick in the centre and thin at the periphery. The study will help in the reconstruction surgeries and in the manufacture of implants in south Indians.
