STUDY DESIGN A uniaxial tensile loading study of 13 lumbar porcine ligaments under varying environmental temperature conditions. OBJECTIVES To investigate a possible temperature dependence of the material behavior of porcine lumbar anterior longitudinal ligaments. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Temperature dependence of the mechanical material properties of ligament has not been conclusively established. METHODS The anterior longitudinal ligaments (ALLs) from domestic pigs (n = 5) were loaded… CONTINUE READING
