Investigators currently lack the data necessary to define the state of skeletal muscle properties within cadaveric specimens. The purpose of this study is to define the temporal changes in the postmortem properties of skeletal muscle as a function of mechanical loading and freezer storage. The tibialis anterior of the New Zealand white rabbit was chosen for study. Modulus and no-load strain were found to vary significantly from live after eight hours postmortem. Following the changes that occur… CONTINUE READING
