Abstract

Background:Cervical vertebrae are the most crucially located and play a dynamic role in the mobility and protection of the vital parts of the central nervous system, they are prone to undergo degenerative diseases like spinal stenosis, cervical spondylosis etc. Hence it is important to know the exact dimensions of cervical vertebral body and spinal canal in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of diseases related to cervical spine and spinal cord.Material And Methods:Normal plain radiographs of cervical spine of two hundred adult subjects of known sex (one hundred males and one hundred females) and of known age group (between 18 to 50 years) studied for Antero-posterior diameter of vertebral body (AP-VB), Height of vertebral body (HT-VB) and Canal body ratio (CBR) in C3 to C7 cervical vertebrae. Data tabulated and analysed by using software statistical Package for Social Sciences(SPSS).Result:Higher mean AP – VB diameter andmean Ht - VB values are recorded in males as compared to females. Higher mean Canal body ratio (CBR) was recorded in females as compared to males.Conclusion: Present study showed, higher mean value of(AP-VB),(HT-VB) in males as compared to females and found to be statistically significant indicating sexual dimorphism. Canal body ratio (CBR) showed slightly higher values in females as compared to males and found statistically significant at C6 and C7 Levels.[Fulari S Natl J Integr Res Med, 2021; 12(3):1-6]
