Morphology of plantar interdigital neuroma: a comparative cadaveric study of elderly Finnish and Japanese individuals
Okajimas Folia Anatomica Japonica
To examine morphological differences in Morton's interdigital neuroma between two elderly human populations, we conducted comparative study using 40 Japanese (27 males, 13 females; mean age, 81.2 years) and 21 Finnish (6 males, 15 females; mean age, 80.5 years) cadavers. We defined the neuroma as a thickening of the nerve of at least two-fold relative to the non-pathological proximal part. The incidence of this neuroma was 25% (10/40) in the Japanese and 33.3% (7/21) in the Finnish cadavers.doi:10.2535/ofaj.90.1 pmid:23883772 fatcat:ywpypzun3renhbr7kyj6soh6q4
