Abstract

Male Fischer rats were given a full thickness, dorsal midline wound with a scalpel, and the wound was closed with 9-mm clips at 1-cm intervals. At postoperative day 14 the rats were sacrificed and wound-breaking strengths (WBS) for various strain rates were determined. The results demonstrated a dramatic dependence of WBS on strain rate.
