Table 2 Mean ± SD values of torsional stiffness (Nm/deg) of SLE and non-SLE operated on groups

From: Use of screw locking elements improves radiological and biomechanical results of femoral osteotomies

   n Mean ± SD 95% confidence interval
Non-SLE group Osteotomized 8 1.39 ± 0.33* 1.19 - 1.62
Non-operated 8 1.96 ± 0.65 1.59 - 2.45
SLE group Osteotomized 8 2.34 ± 0.47* 2.03 - 2.65
  Non-operated 8 1.51 ± 0.38 1.26 - 1.76
  1. *p = 0.012 when comparing osteotomized with their contralateral non-operated bones (Wilcoxon test).
