  • Tissue properties of the small and large intestine

    Hello everyone,

    I'm a Dutch PhD-student working on the design of a laparoscopic bowel
    grasper. I'm looking for information about tissue properties (such as
    allowable stress, shear stress and strain and friction coefficients) of the
    bowel, the mesenterium and the small intestines. I'm also wondering if there
    is any information available about the stresses and forces which are applied
    to the intestines with the presently available instruments. Can anyone tell
    me where to find this kind of information (articles, references, etc.)?
    Thank you in advance.
