ABSTRACT:Aim: To evaluate the morphological variations of the condylar process and the sigmoid notch and their correlation with gender and sides using Orthopantomograms in Western part of Maharashtra population.
Materials and Methods: The study was conducted using 368 Conventional Orthopantomograms of patients. The different shapes of condylar process and sigmoid notch were traced using marker pencil for both right and left sides. The data obtained were subjected to statistical analysis, Chi-square test was done to evaluate the P value which was ascertained to be significant if <0.05.
Results: The condylar shapes commonly observed among the males and females were angled and round shapes, respectively. The sigmoid notch most commonly observed was wide form followed by sloping and round form in both the gender. These variations when compared between gender and sides had shown no statistical significance differences.
Conclusion: The Present study has showed variation in morphological shapes of condylar process and sigmoid notch pertaining to Western part of Maharashtra population. Knowing variation helps in detection of gender and diagnosis of pathologies in those regions.
