Many different analyses beside ANB and Wits have been proposed for assessing the sagittal discrepancy between maxilla and mandible10-12.
This lead to the prediction of the Wits appraisal from the ANB angle.
Regarding Pakistani studies, a study was done to establish correlation between ANB, Wits value and palatal plane angle.
In another Pakistani study, a correlation between ANB angle and Wits appraisal was done.
According to this study the palatal plane is a better indicator than Wits and ANB24.
In one study25 correlation coefficients showed that the ANB angle and the Wits appraisal are significantly correlated but the r values are relatively low.
For a more accurate diagnosis of the anteroposterior apical base relationship, both the ANB angle and Wits appraisal should be used.
In another study the results indicated that approximately 93% of the variation of the Wits appraisal could be explained by the variation of the ANB, Sella-Nasion line and SNA angles.
Our study shows that Wits and ANB are significantly correlated; ANB can be used instead of Wits and vice versa.
