In reconstructive surgery, an artificial supporting scaffold made from autogenous cartilage from the rib, the ear concha, or the nasal septum is used as a substitute for the destroyed endogenous tissue in the ear concha, the nose, the trachea, and in parts of the facial skeleton. For the successful use of polymer materials in reconstructive surgery, an exact knowledge of the material properties of the natural tissues is required. The applicability of conventional material test methods was… CONTINUE READING
