Grahic Jump Location
Average stress-strain curves (mean±SD) for transverse axillary pouch and longitudinal axillary pouch tissue samples. The dashed line for each orientation illustrates the presence of those samples whose ultimate strain was between the lowest and the average ultimate strain.
Grahic Jump Location
Typical stress-strain curves from one specimen illustrating a “toe region” followed by a linear region to failure for the mechanical properties of the transverse and longitudinal axillary pouch tissue samples.
Grahic Jump Location
A superior view of the inferior glenohumeral ligament (IGHL) with the glenoid rotated upward. The orientation of the dog-bone shaped (midsubstance 12.5 mm×2.5 mm) transverse and longitudinal axillary pouch tissue samples are shown with respect to the anterior (AB-IGHL) and posterior (PB-IGHL) bands.
