Table 3 The three different cases of the study

From: Mechanical strength assessment of a drilled hole in the contralateral cortex at the end of the open wedge for high tibial osteotomy

Case H (High) Highest average material parameters found in the literature (mean values from Table 2)
Case M (Middle) Material parameter of cortical bone from youngest patients (values of the group “20-29 years” from Fig. 6)
Case L (Low) Material parameter of cortical bone from oldest patients (values of the group “more than 80 years” from Fig. 6)
  1. The classification high, middle and low is based on the values of the yield stress
