On the relevance of uniaxial tensile testing of urogynecological prostheses: the effect of displacement rate

Abstract

Uniaxial tensile testing is commonly used to calculate values of mechanical properties of urogynecological prostheses used in stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse surgery in women. Clinical behavior of these products has been linked to their mechanical properties, hence influencing the clinician’s preference for one brand or another. The… (More)
