Fluid flow is important in many biomechanical models, but there is a lack of experimental data that quantifies soft tissue permeability. We measured the tissue permeability in fibrous soft tissue, using a novel technique to obtain specimens by allowing soft tissue to grow into coralline hydroxyapatite scaffoldings implanted between the abdominal muscle layers of rats.
