Abstract: . Analysis and interpretation of data and critical revision. ABSTRACT Purpose:To describe a cadaver model and to compare different techniques to correct midline incisional hernia using the tension at the musculoaponeurotic layer as a parameter. Methods: Twenty-four male cadavers were used to characterize the model. The tensile force applied to the anterior layers of the rectus abdominis muscle was measured after the linea alba was resected to create an abdominal wall defect. A dynamometer was used to measure t… Show more

“…It also plays an important part in the transmission of forces resulting from active muscle contraction 3,5 . Collagen is an important component of muscles and fasciae that provides strength to the structures [6][7][8][9] . At present, more than 19 types of collagen have been described 10 , with the types I, II and III being the most studied ones.…”

“…In the technique described by Nahas and Ferreira 3 - 5 , 20 , fresh human corpses were used, which had the alba line removed to promote a defect in the muscle-aponeurotic plane. The tensile strength measurement was also performed with an analog dynamometer.…”

“…The maximum supported capacity is 1kgF (one kilogram-force) or 1000gF (thousand grams-force), the scale being divided every 20gF (twenty grams-force). This dynamometer model has been used successfully in studies to evaluate the tensile strength in the abdominal wall of human cadavers 3 - 5 .…”

“…The evaluation of the subtypes of collagen fibers in muscle biopsies has been essential for the diagnosis of different pathological and experimental conditions, such as hypertrophy caused by repetitive strain and sustained work, muscle atrophy due to lack of use or denervation, and longitudinal fiber splitting 11 . There are few reports in the literature on the effects of ageing on human muscles, probably because of the difficulties associated with the performance of serial studies in humans, which may be one of the reasons why most of the studies use animal models [13][14][15][16] . Because it is difficult to obtain muscle biopsy samples from healthy individuals, we opted to use muscle fragments from cadavers, collected at the same site locations (3 cm above and 2 cm below the umbilicus) used in previous studies 15 .…”
