Table 2 Comparison of intraoperative blood loss, operation time, postoperative partial weight-bearing time, and postoperative full weight-bearing time between the two groups (\( \overline{x}\pm s \))

From: Comparative efficacy and safety profile for the treatment of humeral bone cysts in children: curettage and mixed bone grafting either with or without elastic intramedullary nailing
