A method for obtaining antidromic conduction velocities in the sensory branches of the superficial peroneal nerve at the level of the ankle was evaluated. An essential prerequisite for the study of this nerve is knowledge of its exact topography. The method included the placing of surface recording electrodes directly over the branches of the nerve and(More)

Hemorrhage was rigidly defined to rule out hemorrhage attributed to causes other than diabetes mellitus. The presence of hemorrhage within callus was found to be(More)
