Role of the Extracellular Matrix in Muscle Injuries. Histoarchitectural Considerations for Muscle Injuries.


In recent years, different classifications of muscle injury have been proposed based on topographic location within the bone-tendon-muscle chain. Furthermore, because the degree and level of extracellular matrix (ECM) involvement might vary greatly, we propose to include histoarchitectural considerations in the gross anatomic description of muscle injuries.
