The regional difference of viscoelastic property of bovine temporomandibular joint disc in compressive stress-relaxation.


An in vitro experimental technique was performed to measure the viscoelastic properties of the bovine disc. Thirteen TMJ discs from young cattle (3-year-old) were used. Each disc was divided into five specimens of anterior, central, posterior, lateral and medial regions, and they were used for compression tests. A series of stress-relaxation tests was… (More)
