Orthopaedic Anthropology

The topic Orthopaedic Anthropology covers with application of pieces of knowledge on skeleton development and its functional adaptation in orthopaedic profession. It engages in precise verification of body and skeleton abnormalities (including asymmetry), deformities and disproportions (congenital and acquired) and their development is verified by anthropometric, X-ray, densitometric, CT, MRI, microscopic, histological, histochemical, electronmicroscopic, biochemical, biomechanical, 3D scanning methods and the like. It means exact description of both congenital and acquired skeletal disorders (after injuries and/or due to metabolic and infectious diseases) at macro-, meso-, micro- and nanolevels. Archaeological material is suitable subject of investigation, too. Etiopathogenetic causes of skeleton abnormalities (gene mutations), growth diseases and genetic skeletal disorders are included in the topic.

The terminology Orthopaedic Anthropology was for the 1st time used by Professor Phillip V. Tobias (Johannesburg, South Africa) in 2003 when he from the status of president of „International Anthropological Congress – Anthropology and Society“ (Prague-Humpolec, May 22-24, 2003) assessed the session of the Congress titled „Comprehensive approach to congenital and acquired deformities of locomotor system” by this designation.

Note: The topic of The 11th Prague-Sydney-Lublin Symposium was Orthopaedic Anthropology. This Symposium was held in the frame of the Vth International Anthropological Congress of Aleš Hrdlička “Quo vadis homo …societas humana?“  in September 2 – 5, 2009 Praha – Humpolec, Czech Republic
