Tendon injuries account for a significant number of musculoskeletal afflictions each year. While new surgical techniques and rehabilitation protocols have led to improved clinical outcomes, postsurgical scarring remains the most problematic aspect of tendon repair. In contrast to this typical pattern of fibrosis, recent studies have shown that fetal tendon is capable of healing without scar. However, whether this regenerative healing pattern is intrinsic to the fetal tissue itself or the result… CONTINUE READING
