Résumé

Au cours de la contraction du tissu de granulation, de nombreux fibroblastes acquièrent des caractéristiques ultrastructurelles qui les rendent semblables à des cellules musculaires lisses. Il est probable que ces éléments modifiés jouent un rôle dans le processus de contraction des plaies.
