      AN ANTHROPOMETRIC STUDY OF CARRYING ANGLE AND OTHER PARAMETERS IN YOUNG ADULTS OF KATHMANDU, NEPAL (Abstract): Background: Carrying angle is defined as the angle formed by the axes of the arm and the forearm when the forearm is in full extension and supination. It is significant for assessing various body features and characters. It keeps a great value in different populations for anthropologists as well as clinicians. This research aims to determine the value of carrying angle in specific age group and population in Nepal. Material and Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted in Kathmandu Medical College Nepal. It involves 400 medical students without any anomaly, pathology or asym­metry in shoulder, elbow or wrist. Results: The value of the carrying angle was 10.88 ± 2.22 degree in male and 13.05 ± 2.67 degree in female. The carrying angle was greater in females and was more on dominant side in the both sexes. Mean height with standard deviation between male and female were found to be 170 cm ± 6.45 and 157.93 ± 5.84 respectively. Forearm length in male were 26.38 cm ± 1.585 and 25.84 cm ± 1.559 on right and left side respectively and in female these values were 24.12 cm ± 1.457 and 23.60 cm ± 1.484 on right and left side respectively. These results were found statistically significant (p > 0.001). Conclusion: Our study provides baseline data of carrying angle in Nepalese population. This would be of immense help to assess traumatic elbow injuries and their management and also as an adjunct to identifica­tion of skeletal remains.
