Comparative Biomechanical Characteristics of Modified Side-to-Side Repair and Modified Pulvertaft Weaving Repair - In vitro Study.

CONCLUSIONS: We found no statistical difference between 2 repairs in load at which they started failing (p = 0.16), and maximum load repairs could withstand (p = 0.35). Our study uniquely compares two techniques under standard conditions, and contrary to existing evidence found no difference. However, in our opinion the number of anchor points may have a greater impact than number of weaves on the strength.
