Knowledge of the adaptation of the soft tissue to mechanical factors and biomolecules would be essential to better understand the mechanism of tendon injury and to improve the outcome of tendon repair. The responses to these factors could be different for the distinct types of cells in the tendon: cells from the tendon sheath, fibroblasts from the epitenon… CONTINUE READING
