A scanning electron microscopic study of rabbit ligaments under strain.


For the purpose of determining the critical strain level for ligaments submitted to mechanical stimulation, rabbit medial collateral ligaments (MCLs) were subjected to different predetermined strain levels and then examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Below 10% strain no evidence of disruption of the collagenous entities has been found. At about… (More)
