Table 3 Parameters of equivalent stress with artificial bone

From: Monocortical fixation for locking plate distal screws does not impair mechanical properties in open-wedge high tibial osteotomy

Equivalent stress/MPa A B Ap Bp
1) D hole 104 101 331 313
2) D screw proximal 25 29.5 95 95.8
3) D screw distal in the bone 22.9 20.3 104 99.5
4) Lateral hinge* 20.7 21.6 6.6 6.8
5) Screw 4 proximal 33.4 33.5 63.6 41.5
6) Screw 4 distal in the bone 19.7 8.6 64.7 12.9
