Abstract : <p>Studies on human proximal femur have been done in different areas of the globe. Variations are found due to different levels of activity, race, genetics, clothing, lifestyle and occupation. Accurate description of femoral morphometry is of great interest for biomedical engineers and orthopedic surgeons, but data from different populations is lacking. Such important data happens to be relevant for surgical issues such as for planning surgery and intervention, correction of neck shaft angle, insertion of surgical screws after a fracture and most importantly for prosthesis and implant design. Adequately shaped implants are critical for fixation of femur after fracture or total hip arthroplasty to reduce implant related complications such as change in leg length, dislocation from improper positioning of implants, implant loosening and dislocation fractures. Significant differences have been noted among African Americans, Caucasians, Chinese and other Asian populations. Femoral head diameter, neck diameter, neck axis length, neck shaft angle, femoral offset are morphological parameters of human proximal femur, taken for diagnosis and surgical intervention.</p>
