Figure 2

The metaphyseal fit evaluation in AP radiographs. (a) The medial side of the stem was in contact with the endosteum of the medial femoral cortex through the area of proximal fiber-mesh coating. The metaphyseal fit was defined as good. (b) The medial side of the stem was not in contact with the endosteum of the medial femoral cortex at any area of proximal fiber-mesh coating. The metaphyseal fit was defined as poor. (c) The medial side of the stem was not in contact with the endosteum of the medial femoral cortex at the distal area of proximal fiber-mesh coating. The metaphyseal fit was defined as poor.
