Abstract

In the present study, the relationships among ANB, Wits, AF-BF, and APDI measurements used in the assessment of the anteroposterior jaw disorders were examined on the cephalometric radiographs of 63 male and 82 female subjects, and high correlations were found among them. Furthermore, relationships were explored between these parameters and some measurements that were thought to have influenced them. The results of the geometric studies could not be proved on the basis of statistical evaluation. © 1991 Mosby-Year Book, Inc.
