  • TITLE: Study of Volume, Weight and Size of Normal Pancreas, Spleen and Kidney in Adults Autopsies

    AUTHORS: Veli Caglar, Bahadır Kumral, Ramazan Uygur, Ozan Alper Alkoc, Oguz Aslan Ozen, Husrev Demirel

    KEYWORDS: Organ Volume, Organ Weight, Autopsy, BMI, BSA

    JOURNAL NAME: Forensic Medicine and Anatomy Research, Vol.2 No.3, July 21, 2014

    ABSTRACT: Aims: 1) To establish the volume, weight and size of a normal pancreas, spleen and kidney in 114 adult male autopsies; 2) To investigate the relationship between the volume, weight, and size of the pancreas, spleen, and kidney with body mass index (BMI), body surface area (BSA), age, height, and weight. Methods: The normal pancreas, spleen, and kidney volume, weight, and size retrospectively gathered from 114 forensic autopsy cases between the ages of 25 and 88 years. The pancreas, spleen, and kidney volume, weight, and size were available. The parameters used for statistical correlation were the age, height, body weight, BMI, and BSA of the deceased. Results: The volume, weight, and size of all the organs were shown in correlation with the deceased’s height, body weight, BMI, and BSA but not age. The organ volume, weight, and size showed a better statistical correlation with the BSA, BMI, and body weight than the height. Conclusions: The normal reference ranges for organ volume, weight, and size given in this study can serve as a standard to judge atrophy or hypertrophy of organs in post-mortem diagnosis.
