BACKGROUND Very few attempts have been put sincerely to study the morphometry of the cartilages of the talocrural joint. The sheer strain put on it by the weight of the adult is tremendous and so the structure to be studied is very interesting. This weight bearing quality of the cartilage makes it susceptible to wear and tear and so the measurements that we might get in study may actually help the orthopaedic surgeon in reconstruction. Study in India on this topic is very limited and we use a

What we should understand is the fact that Indians are anthropologically different and it is time to study our own morphometric values, so that the values can be used by the orthopaedic surgeons and ultimately the patients get benefitted by this. METHOD One hundred specimens were studied in the
