Table 1 Comparison of characteristics between intermetatarsal neuroma and control groups by foot affected

From: The relationship between foot posture index, ankle equinus, body mass index and intermetatarsal neuroma

   Case (IMN present) n = 68 Control (No IMN) n = 32  
Mean ± SD Range Mean ± SD Range p-value
IMN right foot n = 40 FPI 3.5 ± 2.9 -5 to 8 2.7 ± 2.5 -3 to 7 0.210
  ADF 5.33 ± 3.99 0 to 15 10.90 ± 3.62 0 to 20 <0.001
IMN left foot n = 38 FPI 2.9 ± 2.8 -1 to 7 3.0 ± 2.9 -5 to 8 0.870
  ADF 4.10 ± 3.89 0 to 15 11.30 ± 3.14 2 to 18 <0.001
  1. IMN Intermetatarsal neuroma, FPI Foot Posture Index, ADF Ankle dorsiflexion (degrees)
  2. P-values from independent t-test comparison of cases with controls. Note there is some overlap in cases as some subjects have IMN in both feet
