Healing and Repair



Whenever tissue is injured, the body reacts, usually in the form of inflammation and haemostasis. With time, the body attempts to restore normal structure and function – this process is known as healing/repair.


Think about it… : Sometimes, healing occurs primarily by regeneration (i,.e. same tissue type grows back), whereas in others, it occurs by scarring – why do you think this happens?
