Abstract

Context: Carrying angle and body mass index (BMI) varies among individuals and it is significant in anatomy, forensic medicine, sports medicine and anthropology. Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine whether the BMI of healthy adult of bangladeshi people had an impact on the carring angle of the elbow joint. This research was also aimed at determining the variation of carrying angle among adult male and female in Bangladeshi population. Study design: Cross-sectional descriptive study. Place & period of study: Department of anatomy , Sylhet M.A.G. Osmani Medical College, Sylhet during the period from July
2016 to June 2017. Materials and Methods: Three hundrad eight volunteers between the age of 18 to 60 years were investigated. The data were analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS 22). Regression analysis was performed to see the correlation. The unpaired t test was used to determine sex differences in carrying angle among the participants. Results: There was a significant difference of mean carrying angle of right (t=-6.866;p<0.001) and left (t=-8.031;p<0.001) side between male and female. There was non-significant negative correlation between right carrying angle (r= -0.046;p=0.422) and BMI. It was also observed non-significant negative correlation between left carrying angle (r=-0.062;p=0.275) and BMI. Conclusion: Non-significant
negative correlation between carrying angle and BMI of the participants of both sides.
