Bone fractures heal through a complex process involving several cellular events. This healing process can serve to study factors that control tissue growth and differentiation from mesenchymal stem cells. The mechanical environment at the fracture site is one of the factors influencing the healing process and controls size and differentiation patterns in the newly formed tissue. Mathematical models can be useful to unravel the complex relation between mechanical environment and tissue formation… CONTINUE READING
