Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Mathematical models are being developed at a fast rate in industry thanks to computer technology; they are used to simulate motion and deformation over time to test materials and objects in a virtual manner. These modeling techniques are being developed in medicine, but they remain, at this time, in the domain of biomechanical research. We report a mathematical model for cutaneous excision and suture, which we have used to predict the deformations and tensions that result when using four different forms of excision. The results are expressed in numerical and graphic form. The results obtained corresponded with our experience in dermatologic surgery. Uses and limits of this model are discussed.
