Table 3 Reduction of the nonunion area mesh cells in every step of the algorithm (row 1); maximum von Mises stress for every step of the algorithm (row 2)

From: Less than full circumferential fusion of a tibial nonunion is sufficient to achieve mechanically valid fusion - Proof of concept using a finite element modeling approach
