OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to quantify the association between claw/hammer toe deformity and changes in submetatarsal head (sub-MTH) fat-pad geometry in diabetic neuropathic feet. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Thirteen neuropathic diabetic subjects (mean age 56.2 years) with toe deformity, 13 age- and sex-matched neuropathic diabetic control subjects without deformity, and 13 age- and sex-matched healthy control subjects without deformity were examined. From high-resolution sagittal… CONTINUE READING
