A mathematical model of medial collateral ligament repair: migration, fibroblast proliferation and collagen formation.

The partial rupture of ligament fibres leads to an injury known as grade 2 sprain. Wound healing after injury consists of four general stages: swelling, release of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), fibroblast migration and proliferation and collagen production. The aim of this paper is to present a mathematical model based on reaction-diffusion… (More)
