The moas ranged in size from that of a turkey to truly colossal dimensions, the giant being Dinornis maximus, which, with a tibial length of 39 in., stood with its small head about 12 ft.
Genu valgum, external tibial torsion and femoral anteversion increase the Q angle.
When shear force is decreased this leads to a decrease in anterior tibial displacement.
Failure of fixation in tibial plateau fractures is very high in elderly patients due to poor bone quality.
Three patients (three ankles, 4.4 %) had a ballooning bone lysis on the tibial side.
