Anthropometric investigations provide valuable data in a variety of groups. The present study aimed to compare the typical hip joint anatomical variations in the south-western population of Iran with those in other populations.
This study was carried out on 1000 normal hip joints of participants from both genders in the age group 18–80 years, who had referred to Abadan Medical College Hospitals, Abadan, Iran,  during 2020-2021 to perform the anthropometric analysis. The CT scan gadget was used to obtain a scan and an axial image of the patients’ hip joints. Moreover, neck shaft angle (NSA), head circumference (HC), and neck width (NW) were measured and calculated in all patients.
The participants’ mean age was 47 years, and the values obtained for the parameters NSA (142.4°), HC (47.7 mm), and NW (28.9 mm) in this study differed from those reported in other studies. Significant changes were also observed between the right and left sides and the gender of the proximal end of the femur in the study population.
When comparing the present findings with those of other studies, there are some differences between the right and left side in NSAs, which were remarkably significant in women populations. Moreover, NW on the right side of the male participants was also remarkably significant. Moreover, HC was comparable to the findings of previous investigations.
