Risk of serious abdominal injury in motor vehicle collisions (MVCs) is substantially reduced with the proper use of seatbelts . However, a significant increase in occurrence of gastrointestinal tract injury exists with belt loading . Crash-induced injuries of the stomach that occur in MVCs include gastric rupture and laceration . To characterize the biomechanical response of the stomach associated with these failure modes, the multidirectional failure properties of cruciate tissue samples were investigated with high-rate biaxial stretch.
