Introduction: Fibula the slender lateral bone of the leg has vast clinical and surgical application. The
various osteometric parameters from both the ends and intervening shaft can be used to accurately assess
the stature, nutritional status of an individual, determine the identity and gender, and aid in evaluation and
surgical management of different ankle pathologies.
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate osteometric parameters of fibula and Talar facet
morphometry in Telangana region. Statistical analyses of these measurements, regional comparisons and
correlations between these measurements are presented in this paper.
Materials and Methods: Anthropometric evaluation of 74 dry, complete adult human fibulae was done.
Measurement of 10 osteometric variables from different parts of the fibula and morphological analysis of
talar facet have been undertaken results statistically analysed and tabulated.
Results and Conclusions: The precise osteometric measurements of adult fibula in Telangana region have
been presented in this paper. Significant correlation was found between the maximum length, mid shaft
circumference, neck circumference, upper and lower epiphyseal breadth. This data has vast anthropometric,
clinical, surgical, forensic and demographic application.

Keywords: Fibula, Neck, Lateral malleolus, Talar facet.
