OBJECTIVE To determine the optimal injection site in the flexor digitorum longus (FDL) muscle for effective botulinum toxin injection. METHODS Fourteen specimens from eight adult Korean cadavers were used in this study. The most proximal medial point of the tibia plateau was defined as the proximal reference point; the most distal tip of the medial malleolus was defined as the distal reference point. The distance of a line connecting the proximal and distal reference points was defined as the… CONTINUE READING
