  1. Bone defect severity was assessed using the Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute classification. Alignment indicates the femoral-tibial angle. CFR was calculated as the ratio between the stem width and the medullary canal width. CFRx stands for CFR > x. CFRx > y indicates stem length > y for CFR larger than x. CFRx length indicates the stem length for which CFR > x. CFRmax indicates the maximum CFR over the entire length of the stem. CI, confidence interval; CFR, canal filling ratio; OR, odds ratio; *: p < 0.05
