Abstract

Background: Diameter of carotid canal is very much important because hypo-plastic of CC leads to multiple of
neuro vascular complications, passing through these CC.
Method: 45 male, 30 female adult non-pathological, dried crania were studied. The cranial Index was measured
by winged calliper and diameter of CC by digital verniercalliper. The obtained values were correlated statistically.
Results: Mean value of CI 64.09 (± 0.35) in male, 70.06 (± 0.98) in females crania Diameter of rt. Cc 0.76 (± 0.14) in
male, 0.67 (± 0.09) in female crania, 0.74 (± 0.10) diameter of cc in males, 0.54(± 0.08) in cc of females crania and
correlation coefficient of both male and female with CI and CCwere highly significant (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Correlative coefficient study of CI and CC in both gender crania will be useful neuro-physician,
neuro-surgeon,radiologist, medico-legal expert, anthropologist and anatomist because morpho-metric values of
mesodermal derivatives are uncertain.
