OBJECTIVES To quantify the mechanical properties of medioposterior bulk calf tissue in patients with lipodermatosclerotic venous-insufficient tissue and individuals with apparently healthy tissue using a novel ultrasound indentometry method, and to identify parameters with the potential for quantifying fibrosis in subsequent studies. DESIGN 2-group, quasi-experimental design SETTING Soft Tissue Mechanics Laboratory, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA PARTICIPANTS: 9 healthy and 9… CONTINUE READING
