ABSTRACT:

Background: Morphometric study of glenoid cavity in 142 dry human scapulae of known sex in Marathwada population to calculate the various diameters of glenoid cavity.

Materials and Methods: This study was done on 142 dry human scapulae (102 were of males and 40 were of females) available in Bone bank of Department of Anatomy at Govt. Medical College, Aurangabad. The three glenoid diameters measured were the superior-inferior diameter, antero-posterior diameter (AP-I) of lower half and antero-posterior diameter (AP-II) of upper half of the glenoid cavity. The morphometric values were analyzed statistically by using unpaired t-test.

Results: All the three glenoid diameters studied were statistically significant with P value <0.005. The mean superior-inferior diameter of glenoid cavity in males and females were 35.95±2.3mm and 31±2.5mm respectively. The mean AP-I diameter of glenoid cavity was 24.6±1.96mm in males and 20.3±2.25mm in females. The mean AP-II diameter of glenoid cavity was 17.46±2.52mm in males and 14.8±1.91mm in females.

Conclusion: All the values observed in the present study were more in male glenoids as compared to female glenoids. Most of the previous workers studied the parameters on left and right scapulae separately. The differences seen between values of the present study and that of the other groups could be explained on the basis of gender segregation, ethnic and racial variations. This fact should be kept in mind while designing glenoid prosthesis for different population.

Key words: Glenoid Cavity, Shoulder Arthroplasty, Scapula.
