Background: Ankle joint is one of the most frequently injured joint and very limited amount of studies is available on morphometry of the articular surfaces of bones forming the tibio-fibular mortise which will help in the reconstruction surgeries and in the manufacture of implants.
Methods: 120 dry adult fibulae (60 right & 60 left) obtained from the Department of Anatomy were studied.
Results: The mean height of talar facet on fibula was found to be 20.61±2.07 mm on the left side and 20.63±1.64 mm on the right side. The mean width of talar facet on fibula was found to be 18.07±2.14 mm on the left side and 18.03±1.98 mm on the right side.
Conclusions: The study provides a comprehensive data about the morphometry of distal end of dry adult fibulae which will help in reconstruction surgeries of the ankle joint.
