Is resection of the tendon edge necessary to enhance the healing process? An evaluation of the expression of collagen type I, IL-1β, IFN-γ, IL-4, and IL-13 in the distal 1 cm of a torn supraspinatus tendon: part II.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Type I collagen proin pro-in expression in a damaged supraspinatus tendon is thought to be dependent on the distance from the edge of the tear and the local expression of pro-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, and pro-proliferative cytokines. The study evaluates the expression of type I collagen, pro-inflammatory interleukin (IL) 1β, anti… (More)
