Data for entheseal changes were recorded according to the method developed by Hawkey and Merbs (1995), which uses an ordinal scale to record the approximate size and severity of the entheseal change (Table 3).
Hawkey and Merbs (1995) address ossification exostoses in their publication regarding activity reconstruction; however, because these distinct bone growths are believed to be the result of more acute trauma (e.
Entheseal Changes Scoring Method (Hawkey and Merbs 1995) Score Description 0 Absence of marginal bone growth or pitting; surface is smooth 1 Slightly rounded cortex, elevation apparent to the touch; no distinct crests or ridges around margin 2 Uneven cortical surface; mound-shaped elevation; no sharp ridges or crests 3 Distinct sharp crest/ridge formation creating a deep indentation with a clearly defined margin of bone 4 A shallow furrow is present, creating a pitting into the cortex (< 1 mm deep) 5 A moderate furrow is present (1-3 mm deep, no longer than 5mm) 6 Marking pitting present (> 3mm deep, > 5mm long) Table 4.
Se utilizo la metodologia propuesta por Hawkey y Merbs (1995), en la cual se definen tres categorias: el marcador de robustez (rugosidad), la lesion causada por estres (porosidad hasta una laguna) y la exostosis osificante.
Si bien al recolectar la informacion se asignaron codigos de 0 a 6 con respecto a los CE, siguiendo la metodologia de Hawkey y Merbs (1995), algunos resultados preliminares mostraron que las frecuencias obtenidas al considerar los codigos 1 y 2 incluian casi la totalidad de la muestra, lo cual no permitia ver diferencias entre grupos (Rojas-Sepulveda 2009); por dicha razon, los analisis contemplan solo los codigos 3, 4, 5 y 6.
