Title:
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. 
Abstract:
Studies on the biomechanical properties of meniscus repairs are usually performed at room instead of body temperature. However, various all-inside meniscal repair devices include bioabsorbable materials, which are mechanically sensitive to higher environmental temperatures. Therefore, we hypothesize that current test standards may systematically lead to a false overestimation of their performance.In 84 cadaveric bovine lateral menisci, an artificial vertical lesion was repaired with different al...    »
