Table 1 Measurement parameters of nutrient artery entry points of the lesser metatarsals on CT

From: Entry points of nutrient arteries at risk during osteotomy of the lesser metatarsals: a fresh cadaveric study

CT axial plane (1) Distances from the dorsal tangential plane to the points of entry of the nutrient arteries into the second, third, and fourth metatarsals
(2) Distances from the plantar tangential plane to the points of entry of the nutrient arteries into the second, third, and fourth metatarsals
CT coronal plane (3) Distances from the distal epiphysis to the points of entry of the nutrient arteries into the second, third and fourth metatarsals
(4) Distances from the proximal epiphysis to the points of entry of the nutrient arteries into the second, third and fourth metatarsals
