Table 1 Groups and materials

From: Suture material for flexor tendon repair: 3-0 V-Loc versus 3-0 Stratafix in a biomechanical comparison ex vivo

Group Technique Number Testing Parameters of interest
1. Stratafix™ Kessler 10 Static Maximum load, 2-mm gap, stiffness
2. Stratafix™ Kessler 10 Cyclic Displacement
3. V-Loc™ Kessler 10 Static Maximum load, 2-mm gap, stiffness
4. V-Loc™ Kessler 10 Cyclic Displacement
  1. Four different groups of flexor tendons were repaired with V-Loc™ or Stratafix™. Testing was static or cyclic, and parameters of interest were 2-mm gap formation force, stiffness, displacement and maximum load.
