Table 2 Comparison of failure and non-failure groups

From: Are component positioning and prosthesis size associated with hip resurfacing failure?

     correlation
  Failures (n = 23) Non-failures (n = 330) p-value coefficient p value
Mean anteroposterior stem-shaft angle in degrees (range) 0 (-14 to 12) 2 (-24 to 28) 0.488 0.08 0.725
Mean lateral stem-shaft angle in degrees (range) 1 (-18 to 19) 3 (-19 to 25) 0.219 0.27 0.283
Mean acetabular cup inclination angle in degrees (range) 37 (20 to 60) 37 (14 to 60) 0.875 0.17 0.428
  1. NB: negative values indicate varus positioning in the anteroposterior plane, and anteversion in the lateral plane
