The muscle wound healing occurs in three overlapping phases: (1) degeneration and inflammation, (2) muscle regeneration, and (3) fibrosis. Simultaneously to injury cellular infiltration by neutrophils and macrophages occur, as well as cellular ‘respiratory burst’ via activation of the enzyme NADPH oxidase. When skeletal muscle is stretched or injured, myogenic satellite cells are activated to enter the cell cycle, divide, differentiate and fuse with muscle fibers to repair damaged regions and… CONTINUE READING
