    Introduction: This study is to analyze the morphological and morphometrical variations of typical cervical vertebrae and to correlate it with its clinical applications and to analyze the size, shape, prominence, and morphology of typical cervical vertebrae using morphometry. This study intends to analyze the variations of typical cervical vertebrae using morphometrical parameters and to correlate it with its clinical implications. Materials and Methods: In the present study, a total of 40 dry human typical cervical vertebrae (C3, C4, C5, and C6) of unknown sex and without any gross abnormality will be collected from the Department of Anatomy, Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, India, for evaluation. The height, transverse diameter, anteroposterior diameter of vertebral bodies, height and length of laminae, length and width of pedicles, length of spine, and length and width of superior and inferior articular facets were measured using vernier caliper. The results obtained were analyzed statistically, tabulated, and represented graphically. Results: The shape, size, and prominence, height, anteroposterior diameter, and transverse diameter of C3, C4, C5, and C6 vertebrae showed slight variations, and there was much difference in the height of left and right lamina of these cervical vertebrae. Conclusion: The variations in morphological and morphometrical analysis of typical cervical vertebrae may have clinical correlation. Conservative therapy includes immobilization of the neck position which will prevent muscular weakness. Although cervical myelopathy has lots of risk, during or after surgery. Therefore such extreme conditions are mostly recommended with conservative therapy.
