Figure 7

Peak value of Von Mises stress on screws for femora instrumented with four different configurations of screw placement at 126 mm longitudinal length of osteotomy. The peak value of von Mises stress of the fixation screws increased with decreasing numbers of screws, and the highest value of von Mises stress was found on the most distal screw (D2) when the femur was instrumented with four screws (P2/D2).
