Connective Tissue Wound Repair and Glucocorticoid Inhibition
Schreuder, Paul Henry
MetadataShow full item record
This paper is intended to serve as an introduction to wound healing in connective tissues and its inhibition by glucocorticoid hypersecretion. To attempt a comprehensive review on the subject would have been futile; therefore cutaneous wound healing was chosen as a model. The simpler structural and functional relationships between the connective tissue and the epithelium of the skin, the dermis and epidermis respectively, in comparison to most other tissues, reduces many of the complexities involved in healing. Infection from either living microorganisms or inert particulate matter, although not uncommon after injury, further complicates the basic healing process and will not be included. The type of wound to be studied will be a narrow, cutaneous incision with the understanding that each wound is unique in itself, and depending on the damage inflicted need be repaired accordingly.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
