Figure 8

Vertical displacement of femoral head for femora instrumented with four different configurations of screw placement. The result indicated that additional screws decreased femoral head displacement (increased stability). A comparison of conditions using different screw placement combinations (P2/D3, P3/D2) revealed that additional screws on the proximal segment achieved more stability of the reconstructed femora than additional screws on the distal segment.
