Table 1 Widening after a cyclic loading, ultimate failure load and stiffness of the suture materials

From: Novel flat and wide meniscal repair material improves the ultimate load of knot breakage in a porcine trans-capsular meniscal repair model

  Widening after cyclic loading (mm) Ultimate failure load (N) Stiffness (N/mm)
C group (n = 6) 0.51 ± 0.39 58.8 ± 8.25a,b 27.1 ± 7.70d,e
H group (n = 6) 0.23 ± 0.11 79.4 ± 10.2a,c 45.0 ± 7.74d
FW group (n = 6) 0.54 ± 0.08 97.4 ± 3.65b,c 43.7 ± 7.93e
  1. All values are given as means ± S.D. There were no statistically significant differences in widening among the groups after the cyclic load test. However, there were statistically significant differences among the groups in ultimate failure load. Compared with that of the other groups, the stiffness of the C group was significantly lower
  2. a, b, d: p < 0.01; c: p = 0.02; e: p = 0.01
