Abstract

A previous study have shown that the strain generated potential (SGP) in rabbit patellar tendon (PT) is frequency and pH dependent. The present study attempts to relate changes in internal hydraulic pressure to the electrokinetics of PT. Eight PTs from adult New Zealand rabbits with patellar and tibial bone block were harvested immediately after death. Bone blocks were cross-sectioned, then Ag/AgCl electrodes with barb were inserted into the cross sectional centers of each PT. Prior to testing, the PT was moistened in balanced saline for 20-40 minutes until the signal stabilized. Results obtained indicate that both hydraulic pressure and SGPs respond to cyclic tension and also support an electrokinetic theory for this behavior.
