Abstract:   (1890 Views)
The normal carrying angle in Shiraz population was measured on the basis of sex and age. The right elbow angle of 4266 cases was examined from birth to 30 years old. This study found the carrying angle in 2540 females to be 7.20 (range 2-19) and in 1726 males to be 6.40 (range 2-11), a 0.80 difference. A significant difference (p= 0.05) was found in relation to age. There is a gradual increase in the carrying angle with skeletal maturation.
