Background: Morphometric analysis help in reconstruction of bone and a proper surgical planning. It also helps in making of surgical plates and creating of screw and other implanted supported which help in proper management of proximal fracture treatment. Such type of morphometric measurement also helps an anthropology and forensic analysis. Objectives: To determine the dimension of proximal end of femurMaterial and Methods: This is an observational cross sectional study.100 femur were taken with known sex to measure the head vertical diameter (HVD), Neck vertical diameter and Head transverse diameter on both side of each humerus. The different parameters of each humerus were measured by with the help of Digital Vernier calipers.Results: The mean head vertical diameter of male was 45.46 ± 1.7 and in female 40.57 ± 2.56. The mean neck vertical diameter of male 32.57 ± 2.857 and in female it was 24.59 ± 2.9. The mean head transverse diameter for male was 44.91 ± 1.91 and in female 40.36 ± 2.57.
