Peritoneum Material Properties

Client: Cleveland Clinic

Services Provided: Experiment Design / Uniaxial Material Testing / Data Analysis

More and more implantable medical devices are including allografts or other tissue based technologies. For some of these tissues it is important to understand what affect the storage environment, prior to implantation, will have on the mechanical properties of the tissue. In this experiment, properties such as stiffness, elasticity, and failure strength were measured for bovine peritoneum as a function of storage time, and storage medium.
