- 1.1. Healing of severed, striated muscle of dogs and rats occurs by fibrous connective tissue growth from the epi-, peri-, and endomysium, and not through regeneration of muscle cells.
- 2.2. Fascia unites readily to fascia, when closely approximated, by connective tissue growth.
- 3.3. The type of suture material employed (silk or catgut) did not appear to influence the degree or extent of union between fascia or muscle.
- 4.4. A firmer union developed between muscle and muscle and between fascia and fascia than Seelig and Chouké observed between muscle and fascia.
- 5.5. The union of muscle to muscle and fascia to fascia is complete eight to eleven days after suture.
