Abstract

The range of variation in epiphyseal fusion for the distal end of fibula epiphysis in Punjab, India populations has been studied in the present study. This study evaluates epiphyseal fusion of the distal fibula in 100 young individuals, 50 males, and 50 females with age range from 16-17 years to 24-25 years. Radiographs were performed at Rajindra Hospital, Patiala, Punjab, India with 10 cases from each age group in both males and females. Both AP and lateral views of X-ray were taken. Results indicate that complete fusion in males occur at the age of 18-19 age group and in females occurs at 16- 17 year age group in the distal end of the fibula. Earliest union for males and females occur at 16 years.
