Table 2 Comparison between different genders: diameters of lateral screws, lengths of lateral screws, L3 and L4

From: A guideline for screw fixation of coracoid process base fracture by 3D simulation

Group Diameter# (mm) Length# (mm) L3# (mm) L4# (mm)
All (n = 100) 7.34 ± 1.11 48.16 ± 6.94 19.87 ± 2.76 4.88 ± 0.86
Male (n = 50) 8.06 ± 0.81 52.81 ± 5.40 21.08 ± 2.51 5.06 ± 0.70
Female (n = 50) 6.61 ± 0.87 43.52 ± 4.91 18.66 ± 2.47 4.69 ± 0.96
t value* 8.655 8.997 4.856 2.181
P value* 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.03
  1. *t and P are the results of gender comparisons
  2. #For the diameter, length, the distance of L3 and L4, intersex difference was significant (P < 0.05)
