Figure 9

Medial (top) and anterior (bottom) view of von Mises stress for femora instrumented with four different longitudinal lengths of osteotomy but the same number of screws (P3/D2). (A) 116 mm, (B) 126 mm, (C) 136 mm and (D) 146 mm. The von Mises stress around the femoral neck regions progressively increased as the longitudinal length of osteotomy increased from 116 mm to 146 mm.
