Biomechanical analysis of human ligament grafts used in knee-ligament repairs and reconstructions.
Virtually all types of collagenous tissues have been transferred in and around the knee joint for intra-articular and extra-articular ligament reconstructions. However, the mechanical properties (inExpand

Comparison of material properties in fascicle-bone units from human patellar tendon and knee ligaments.
The fascicle material properties in bone-fascicle-bone units were determined for the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL, PCL), the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and the patellarExpand

Ligamentous and capsular restraints preventing straight medial and lateral laxity in intact human cadaver knees.
In this study, we determined which hgaments and capsular structures resist medial and lateral opening of the joint space in cadaver knees during clinical testing for straight medial and lateralExpand

Functional tissue engineering: the role of biomechanics.
"Tissue engineering" uses implanted cells, scaffolds, DNA, protein, and/or protein fragments to replace or repair injured or diseased tissues and organs. Despite its early success, tissue engineersExpand

Effects of structure and strain measurement technique on the material properties of young human tendons and fascia.
It is generally recognized that the organization of collagen bundles in soft tissues strongly influences their material properties. To study this, sixty failure tests were conducted on double-layeredExpand

Use of mesenchymal stem cells in a collagen matrix for achilles tendon repair
This investigation tested the hypothesis that delivering mesenchymal stem cell‐seeded implants to a tendon gap model results in significantly improved repair biomechanics. Cultured, autologous,Expand

Repair of patellar tendon injuries using a cell–collagen composite
Collagen gels were seeded with rabbit bone marrow‐derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and contracted onto sutures at initial cell densities of 1, 4, and 8 million cells/ml. These MSC–collagenExpand

Effects of gamma irradiation on the initial mechanical and material properties of goat bone‐patellar tendon‐bone allografts
The effects of 60Co gamma irradiation on the initial mechanical properties of the composite bone‐patellar tendon‐bone unit (CU) and the tendon midsubstance (TM) were studied. Frozen specimens wereExpand
