Soft Tissue Wound Healing

"Wound healing refers to the body's replacement of destroyed tissue by living tissue"

2 essential components (REG & REP)

  • Specialised tissue is replaced by proliferation of surrounding undamaged specialised cells

  • L.T replaced by G.T which matures to form S.T

  • Lost tissue is replaced by granulation tissue which matures to form scar tissue
