Influence of test temperature on biomechanical properties of all-inside meniscal repair devices and inside-out meniscus sutures - evaluation of an isolated distraction loading, worst-case scenario


Brucker, P U; Favre, P; Puskas, G J; von Campe, A; Koch, P P; Meyer, D C (2011). Influence of test temperature on biomechanical properties of all-inside meniscal repair devices and inside-out meniscus sutures - evaluation of an isolated distraction loading, worst-case scenario. Clinical Biomechanics, 26(7):749-753.

Abstract

20°C environmental temperature seems to be an acceptable test condition for the most meniscal repair devices. However, if the bioabsorbable part of the implant is the weakest link, body temperature may be considered for testing to prevent false overestimation of the biomechanical properties. For future biomechanical in vitro testing of meniscal repair devices, this study may provide novel insight into biomechanical test protocols for considering the environmental test temperature as an influencing factor of the biomechanical properties of especially bioabsorbable meniscal repair devices.
