Grahic Jump Location
Method for creating partial laceration in canine model. Initial laceration through 50 percent of tendon completely severing one of the dense fibrous cords followed by additional 50 percent laceration of remaining fibrous cord.

Suture repair methods used in this study
Grahic Jump Location
Sutured tendon with placement of DVRT displacement transducer over laceration site
Grahic Jump Location
Representative load-displacement recording during tensile testing. Displacement was measured by DVRT transducer (dotted line) and by grip-to-grip displacement (solid line).
