    Introduction: Knowledge about the different diameters of the head and neck of femur is essential in orthopedic surgery for prosthesis and nail application. The aim of this study was to evaluate the average FNA in the young Egyptians and the effect of age on it. Also, matching sex and side differences of the angle were done by using CT. In addition, the different growth parameters of the proximal femur were measured by using plain X-ray. Side, sex differences and correlation analysis between these parameters were also done. Material and methods: Two hundred cases subjected to the plain X-ray from both sexes (110 males and 90 females) with age above 25 years old were used in the present study. The following measurements were taken the vertical diameter of neck (VDN), vertical diameter of head (VDH), transverse diameter of neck (TDN) and transver.. View More»
