Table 3 Cox logistic regression analysis (p = 0.026) to identify risk factors for reoperation following LLP

From: Immediate weight-bearing is safe following lateral locked plate fixation of periprosthetic distal femoral fractures

Covariate Hazard ratio (95% CI) p value
Age 1.01 (0.90–1.12) 0.912
Su III fracture 5.58 (0.72–43.3) 0.100
Medial comminution 10.7 (1.45–79.5) 0.020
Anatomic reduction 0.11 (0.013–0.96) 0.046
Golf-club deformity 0.28 (0.03–2.59) 0.264
Dual plating 5.3 (0.12–224.1) 0.387
Cables 0.80 (0.14–4.50) 0.800
Protected weight-bearing postoperatively 0.33 (0.05–2.37) 0.269
