Lacey Wice, (Anatomical Sciences) – Conservation of Mechanical and Material Properties in Phenol-Based Soft Embalmed Cadaveric Tissues and Joints
Manage episode 333581933 series 3368682
In cadaveric biomechanics, fresh-frozen (FF) thawed specimens are considered the industry standard; maintaining high fidelity to in vivo counterparts. However, longevity concerns associated with rapid decomposition of soft tissues result in low reproducibility of testing and a short working window for these specimens. There are alternatives, but which is best?
