Outcome measures included percentage force loss during position-controlled cycling (Δde in Figure 4), dynamic and total elongation, and stiffness and ultimate load during pull to failure. Points of data evaluation are also given in Figure 4. The elongation experienced during load-controlled cyclic loading was the dynamic elongation (Δbc and Δbd, respectively, in Figure 4), and the total elongation was the elongation occurring from the retensioning of the graft until the last load-controlled cycle was completed (Δad in Figure 4). Stiffness was measured within a linear portion of the pull-to-failure curve (e in Figure 4). Ultimate failure load was the absolute maximum during the pull-to-failure testing.
