OA Anatomy Original research study Clinical Anatomy  Solanke KS, Bhatnagar R, Pokhrel R. The number and position of nutrient foramina inhumerus, radius and ulna of human dry bones of Indian srcin with clinical correlation. OAAnatomy 2014 Feb 01;2(1):4. AbstractAims and objective: To study number and position of nutrient foramina (NF) in humerus, radius and ulna of dry bones of Indian srcin and correlatethe findings clinically. Materials and Methods:  Among 260 bones studied, 100 (56 right and 44 left) were humerii and 80 (40 left and 40 right) each radii and ulnae. Locationand number of NF were observed and length of bone, distance of NF from proximal end of bone, anteroposterior and transverse diameters at the levelof NF was measured. Statistical analysis was done for central tendency. Students t test was applied to assess statistically significant correlationbetween number of NF and size of bone. Foraminal index was calculated using Hughes Formula. Results : All bones had NF directed towards elbow. Mean distances of NF from proximal ends were 17.70 ± 2.12 cm, 8.39 ± 2.33 cm and 9.00 ± 1.55 cm for humerus, radius and ulna respectively. Nutrient foramen was absent in 4% humerii, 5% radii and 3.75% ulnae and double in 4% humerii and 2.5% radii. No correlation was found between number of NF and size of bones i.e. length or diameters. Majority (76.92%) of bones had NF in middle third of shaft whereas distal third was a rare position. Nutrient foramina were most commonly present in anteromedial surface for Humerus (67%) andanterior surface for both radius (66.25%) and ulna (76.62%). Conclusion: The study provides important information about morphology and topography of NF in upper limb long bones knowledge of which willprove to be useful in planning orthopedic procedures.
