The following measures with ruler and digital pachymeter were performed: (1) forearm length measured from the center of a line between the medial and lateral epicondyles (intercondylar line) to the center of a line between the radial and ulnar styloid processes; (2) distance between the medial epicondyle and the site of PL branch origin; (3) length of the PL motor branch.
Average forearm length was 35.13+- 0.53mm, length of 3rd metacarpal was 38.68+-1.21mm, length of 4th metacarpal was 31.3+-1.79mm while 5th metacarpal was 31.15+-1.35mm long.
Once a diagnosis is established, the surgical treatment focuses on addressing the radial head fracture and the DRUJ disruption in order to restore forearm length and stability.
(1999): small size (Forearm length: 47.40 - 49.30 mm), brown dorsal pelage, belly paler than the back, tail protruding from the uropatagium at least half of its length, rostrum slightly naked, pointed muzzle, smooth lips without pronounced folds, thick ears, rounded and widely separated in the crown, inner ear keel ends up behind the posterior border of the antitragus, sagittal and lambdoid crest poorly developed, basisphenoid pits moderately deep and rounded.
The genus Micronycteris Gray, 1866 comprises small phyllostomid bats (forearm length: 3146 mm) occurring in a variety of habitats in the Neotropical region (Simmons & Voss 1998; Fonseca et al.

Biceps, triceps, abdominal, and forearm skinfold thickness (BSF, TSF, ASF, FSF) are measured; (iv) Mid-arm circumference (MAC): MAC is measured using a measuring tape to the nearest 0.1 cm; (v) Maximum forearm circumference (MFAC): MFAC is measured using a measuring tape to the nearest 0.1 cm; (vi) Radial styloid circumference (RSC): RSC is measured using a measuring tape to the nearest 0.1 cm; (vii) Forearm length (FAL): FAL is measured using a measuring tape to the nearest 0.1 cm.
Both these species have a small dermal ridge on their muzzle and are distinguishable on the basis of forearm length relative to their tail length.
Table 4 shows that Pakistani under-19 cricketers were significantly lengthier in the measurements of sitting height than Malaysian under-19 cricketers t = 2.578, P <.013, in the arm span t = 2.528, P <.015, in the total arm length t = 5.366, P <.000, upper arm length t = 2.932, P <.005, forearm length t = 5.068, P <.000, hand length t = 3.987, P <.000, lower leg length t = 2.989, P <.005.
Forearm length and cranial dimensions of this specimen were measured using a mechanical calliper as described in Vallo et al.
The intimal and medial thickening after transradial coronary interventions which was observed through OCT was also noted by Yonetsu et al .[sup][17] Furthermore, the risk of medial dissections caused by sheath insertion may increase if the diameter/sheath ratio is ≤1.[sup][18] Our results suggest that the risk of occlusion may be reduced by moving the puncture site proximally or by increasing the length of the sheath according to the forearm length of each patient.[sup][19]
Also, a discriminant analysis was performed with data recorded for forearm length, leg length, weight and wing area for mid-sized bat species (groups) that consume P tuberculatum, S.
