The effect of tenotomy and of immobilisation in lengthened and shortened positions on the intramuscular connective tissue of the calf muscles of the rat was studied morphometrically and with a scanning electron microscope. Both tenotomy and immobilisation produced a marked increase in both the endomysial and the perimysial collagen networks, with a simultaneous decrease in intramuscular capillary density. The increase in connective tissue volume was more pronounced and occurred more rapidly in… CONTINUE READING
