Morphometric study of ovary and its relation with age and height of the individual in South Indian population

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Background: The ovaries are the organs responsible for the manufacture of the female germ cells, the ova in the sexually mature female. Ovarian morphometric measurements can be affected by patients age, height and existence of systemic disease. Aim: The aim of this study is to measure various dimensions of the ovary and to correlate that with the height and age of the individual. Materials and Method: The study was conducted on 46 females that came for the autopsy. Their ovaries length, breadth and thickness on both right and left side were measured using a vernier calliper. Their height was measured using graduated autopsy scale. The age of the patient was noted down from the autopsy file. The data obtained is subjected to statistical calculations using Spss computer programmer to derive linear regression equations. Results: The mean length, width and thickness of ovary on the right and left side was 3, 1.6, 0.93cm and 3.07, 1.65, 0.92cm. There was a significant correlation of age with all the parameters of the ovary on both right and left side. Even there was a significant correlation of height with breadth and thickness of ovary on both right and left side. Conclusion: The result of this study will help the forensic experts to find the age as well as the height of individual from this organ. Exact knowledge of the normal morphometry of the ovary may assist the gynaecologists to adopt suitable diagnosis and management of several clinical disorders related with the ovary.
