Table 5 Bone Mineral Density (BMD) Analysis

From: Comparison of outcomes according to fixation technique following the modified Ludloff osteotomy for hallux valgus in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

  Preoperative femoral neck BMD, g/cm2 [mean (SD)] Preoperative femoral neck T-score [mean (SD)]
Group P 0.592 (0.079) −2.0 (0.72)
Group S 0.672 (0.117) −1.2 (1.11)
 Correction Maintenance (n = 10) 0.720 (0.114) −0.8 (1.01)
 Correction Loss (n = 5) 0.577 (0.046) −2.1 (0.43)
p-value 0.028* 0.028*
p-value a 0.905 0.905
  1. *Significant difference
  2. p-values were estimated by comparing the correction maintenance and correction loss subgroups within Group S
  3. p-valuesa were estimated by comparing Group P with the correction loss subgroup within Group S
