Comparison of the mechanical behaviors of biological tissues subjected to uniaxial tensile testing: pig, calf and ostrich pericardium sutured with Gore-Tex.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the mechanical behavior of calf pericardium, pig pericardium and ostrich pericardium when subjected to tensile testing. Tensile stress was applied to 108 tissue samples, 36 of each type of tissue, until rupture. Groups of three adjacent strips measuring 12 x 2 cm(2) were cut longitudinally. Each group consisted of an… (More)
