Table 2 Measurements of the intercondylar width changes (Δ) without loading force (0N) before and after the 5000-cycle fatigue test for the parallel, Y, and posterior two plating constructs

From: Does posterior configuration have similar strength as parallel configuration for treating comminuted distal humerus fractures? A cadaveric biomechanical study

  Parallel plating Y plating Posterior two plating P-value (Kruskal-Wallistest)
Axial loading ΔIntercondylar width (mm) (loading force: 0N) 0.40 ± 0.26 0.26 ± 0.31 0.78 ± 0.63 0.246
Posterior bending ΔIntercondylar width (mm) (loading force: 0N) 0.90 ± 0.65 1.98 ± 1.37 0.62 ± 0.55 0.151
