Abstract:

This study was carried out to give a report on the average acetabula index and centre edge angle, its sexual dimorphism in South-South Nigerian population and to examine if there is racial differences in acetabula index and centre edge angle when compared to other races. Anteroposterior radiographs of adult pelvis (age range, 18-75 years) were evaluated. Five hundred and eighteen (518) radiographs (259 males and 259 females) were used. The morphological measurements were Acetabula index of Sharp and centre edge angle of Wiberg. The mean centre edge angle of males and females were 34.395.53 and 35.585.74. There was sexual dimorphism with respect to the centre edge angle. The female centre edge angle was significantly higher than that of the male centre edge angle (p0.05). The mean Acetabula angle of Sharp for males and females were 36.394.04 and 36.993.65. There was no significant difference between the males Acetabula angle of Sharp and that of the females (p0.05). There was a negative correlation between the centre edge angle and acetabula index for males (p0.05). There was also a negative correlation between the centre edge angle and acetabula index for females (p0.05). The total mean centre edge angle was 34.985.66 for south South Nigerian population. The total mean acetabula index was 36.693.86 for south South Nigerians. These results were compared with other races in the literature. It was observed that there was a racial differences with respect to centre edge angle and Acetabula index. Knowledge gained from this study will be useful to the orthopaedic surgeon, clinician, anthropologist and in forensic science. In treating hip dysplasia, local values should be given cognizance.
