Scarless fetal wound healing occurs with mild fibroplasia and neovascularization, while the wound is persistently enriched with hyaluronic acid. Conversely, adult wounds are characterized by prominent fibroplasia, neovascularization, and scar formation, and hyaluronic acid is a transient component of the early adult wound matrix. Our group has reported that… CONTINUE READING
