Abstract

The tensile and gap formation properties following repair using six common techniques in partially lacerated human flexor tendons were evaluated. The tendons were secured in a tensile testing machine. Results showed that there was no significant difference in maximum failure load or tendon stiffness among the six suture repair method.
