One-fluoroscopic technique Two-fluoroscopic technique P-value
Operative time (min) 47.15 ± 13.48 36.62 ± 8.42 0.019
T1 (mSv) 0.27 ± 0.12 0.25 ± 0.14 0.653
T2 (mSv) 1.97 ± 1.20 0.95 ± 0.34 0.031
BMI 24.71 ± 2.78 23.42 ± 2.88 0.204

T1 Mean radiation dose to the operator, T2 Mean radiation dose to the patient, BMI Body Mass Index.
