Classic measuring techniques4 were used for observation of features of linea aspera, including the use of Vernier caliper.

Observations About the Location of Nutrient Foramen in 100 Femora Location of Nutrient Foramen Number of Bones % Linea Aspera 79 55.2% Medial Surface 32 22.4% Lateral Surface 31 21.7% Medial Supracondylar Ridge 1 0.7% Table 4.
The principal nutrient foramina of the femur are located toward the middle of the linea aspera (Schaeffer, 1953; Orts-Llorca, 1963; Testut & Latarjet, 1971) with a possible variation in number and position, located in proximity to the linea aspera, generally one is located near the proximal extremity of the linea aspera and a second, that is not always present, in proximity to its distal extreme (Williams & Warwick, 1995), can be found in a point of the medial surface of the bone always near the linea aspera (Rouviere & Delmas, 1999).
The nutrient foramina of the femur was located in the linea aspera in the 72,5% (36.25% in the interstice 8,75 in the lateral lip and 27,5 in the medial lip of the linea aspera, in the 21,25% in the medial face and in the 6,25% in the lateral face of the diaphysis of the bone.
(1994) who pointed out that in the femur the nutrient foramina is restricted to a linea aspera or adjacent zones, locating itself in the medium third of the bone.
It arose from the lower end of lateral lip of linea aspera above the origin of lateral head of gastrocnemius muscle (from lateral supracondylar ridge).
