Morphometric characteristics of the forearm bones in subjects of childhood, adolescence and early adulthood
Objective: to identify patterns of typology, age and variability of bilateral forearm bones in children, adolescents and young adults. Material and methods. The method of direct linear osteometry determined length (maximum length) and circumference (maximum circumference of the diaphysis) size of the bones of the forearm. Calculated thickness-length index as a percentage of the maximum circumference of the diaphysis to the greatest length of the bone. Results. The age characteristics of greatest length, the greatest circumference of the diaphysis and thickness-length index, as well as communication with the studied parameters of body length. Conclusion. The largest relative increase in the parameters identified in the second childhood and adolescence. Thickness-length index with age decreases slightly from 16,82 to 15.28% in the ulna (9%) and from 20,26 to 19,24% at the radius (5%). A direct close and substantial connection between the length and circumference of the bone and medium-reverse thickness-length index of forearm bones with age and body length.
