Constitutive Modelling of Knitted Abdominal Implants in Numerical Simulations of Repaired Hernia MechanicsPublication
The paper presents a numerical approach to describe mechanical behavior of anisotropic textile material, which is a selected abdominal prosthesis. Two constitutive nonlinear concepts are compared. In the first one the material is considered composed from two families of threads (dense net model) and in the second one the material is homogeneous but anisotropic (as proposed by Gassel, Ogden, Holzapfel). Parameters of both models...
The paper concerns abdominal wall modelling. The accurate prediction and simulation of abdominal wall mechanics are important in the context of optimization of ventral hernia repair. The shell Finite Element model is considered, as the one which can be used in patient-specific approach due to relatively easy geometry generation. However, there are uncertainties in this issue, e.g. related to mechanical properties since the properties...
Abdominal prostheses are used in humans for abdominal wall strengthening or reconstruction. From the mechanical point of view they are membranes, so their basic mechanical property is tensile stiffness. This property is experimentally identified for a selected implant, OptomeshTM. The obtained results are described herein. Uni-axial simple and cyclic tension tests are a basis for the analysis. Both kinds of tests allowed to distinguish...
Towards Understanding of Mechanics of Hernia Managed by Synthetic Mesh in Laparoscopic Operation: A Single Case StudyPublication
In this paper a research towards understanding of mechanics of ventral hernia operated with the use of Physiomesh Open image in new window implant and SecureStrap Open image in new window staples is described. Experimental and numerical studies are conducted for that purpose. Experimental works cover uni-axial tension tests of the implant samples and of the implant-staples-tissue system. Also experiments on implant-staples-tissue...
