After previous cleaning of the area with alcohol, four surface electrodes were placed on their left foot and hand in the following position: 1) at metacarpophalangeal articulation level, 2) between the radius and the ulnar styloid processes, 3) at metatarsophalangeal
articulation level, and 4) between the medial and the lateral ankle malleoli.
In addition, nematodes were visible in the metatarsophalangeal

The procedure was performed under regional anaesthesia, with a racket incision centred over the fourth metatarsophalangeal
