In vitro tissue culture experiments were performed to study the biomechanical response of collagen fascicles to restressing after exposure to non-loaded condition. Collagen fascicles of approximately 300 microm in diameter were aseptically dissected from rabbit patellar tendons. They were cultured under no-load condition for 1 week, and then under a static stress of approximately 1.2 MPa for the subsequent 1 or 2 weeks. After culture, their mechanical properties were determined with a micro… CONTINUE READING
