The schematic diagram of finite element analysis. During the finite element analysis, thread-bone (yellow boxes) and thread-implant (yellow circle) interfaces were tied, while others were set to slide contact. All fixation models were constrained to within 80 mm distal from the lesser trochanter and subjected to 237.7% body weight loading along the femoral mechanical axis. A preload of 224 N for cannulated screws and 591 N for DHSs was applied ahead of the weight load
