A Study of Third Trochanter in Femora of Pakistani Population.
Keywords:Femur, Third Trochanter.
Abstract150 pairs of male and 15 pairs of female Pakistani femora were studied for the presence of third trochanter and other features classified by previous workers. Third trochanter was found to be present in 13.9% (10.9% in male and 3.0% in female) femora. Crista glutea was found present in 27.8%, with males showing a higher percentage. Frequency of various types of crista glurea and gluteal tuberosity showed dominance on right side ¡n both sexes. Incidence of third trochanter in Pakistanis (13.9%) was markedly less than Asians (50.0 %,), more than Indians (5.6%) and almost close to Chinese (9.45%), Germans (17.94 %,) and French (18.3%).
