Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Surgical repair of the glenohumeral capsule after dislocation ignores regional boundaries of the capsule and is not sex specific. However, each region of the capsule functions to stabilize the joint in different positions, and differences in joint laxity between men and women have been found. The objectives of this research were to determine the effects of region (axillary pouch and posterior capsule) and sex on the material properties of the glenohumeral capsule. Boundary conditions derived from experiments were used to create finite-element models that applied tensile deformations to tissue samples from the capsule. The material coefficients of a hyperelastic constitutive model were determined via inverse finite-element optimization, which minimized the difference between the experimental and finite-element model-predicted load-elongation curve. These coefficients were then used to create stress-stretch curves representing the material properties of the capsule regions for each sex in response to uniaxial extension. For the axillary pouch, the C1 (men: 0.28+/-0.39 MPa and women: 0.23+/-0.12 MPa) and C2 (men: 8.2+/-4.1 and women: 7.7+/-3.0) material coefficients differed between men and women by only 0.05 MPa and 0.5, respectively. Similarly, the posterior capsule coefficients differed by 0.15 MPa (male: 0.49+/-0.26 MPa and female: 0.34+/-0.20 MPa) and 0.6 (male: 7.8+/-2.9 and female: 7.2+/-3.0), respectively. No differences could be detected in the material coefficients between regions or sexes. As a result, surgeons may not need to consider region- and sex-specific surgical repair techniques. Furthermore, finite-element models of the glenohumeral joint may not need region- or sex-specific material coefficients when using this constitutive model.
