Table 2 Positive proximal margin rates for specimens with 0.5 cm and 1 cm resection margins

From: Correlating pre-operative MRI measurements of metatarsal Osteomyelitis with surgical clean margins reveals the need for a one centimeter resection margin

  No. of specimens Negative Margin Positive Margin + Margin Rate
0.5 cm resection margin 10 (specimens with FP = 0) 5 5 50.0%
1 cm resection margin 14–3(specimens with FP) = 11 10 1 9.0%
