A preliminary technical study on sodium dodecyl sulfate-induced changes of the nano-structural and macro-mechanical properties in human iliotibial tract specimens.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Acellular scaffolds are frequently used for the surgical repair of ligaments and tendons. Even though data on the macro-mechanical properties related to the acellularization process exist, corresponding data on the nano-structural properties are still lacking. Such data would help identify target proteins of the formed extracellular matrix that… (More)
