Skeletal muscle injuries

Clin Sports Med. 2009 Jan;28(1):1-11. Stem cells for the treatment of skeletal muscle injury Quintero AJ, Wright VJ, Fu FH, Huard J. Abstract Skeletal muscle injuries are extremely common, accounting for up to 35%-55% of all sports injuries and quite possibly affecting all musculoskeletal traumas. These injuries result in the formation of fibrosis, which may…

Stem cells of skeletal muscle

Ther Umsch. 2003 Jul;60(7):383-9. [Regeneration capacity of skeletal muscle] Wernig A Abstract The organotypic stem cell of skeletal muscle has previously been known as satellite cell. They allow muscle fiber growth during ontogenesis, enable fiber hypertrophy and are responsible for the very efficient repair of muscle fibers. This efficient apparatus is to some degree counterbalanced…
