Summary:

The purpose of the work is to define the location and the direction of nutrient canal of diaphysis and zone of concentration of nutrient foramina of shin bones. Material and methods: Parameters of tibia and fibula (n=208) of adults aged from 22 to 89 years (118 men and 90 women) have been studied. Results: The phenomena of individual and age variability, sexual dimorphism and bilateral dissymmetry of the position and the direction of nutrient canal and zones of concentration of nutrient foramina of tibia and fibula have been investigated. The distance of nutrient foramen at various types of shin bones has been defined. Conclusion: Position and direction of nutrient canal of diaphyses of shin bones differ in varioust bone types.
