Regeneration of the plantar skin in mammals
- 12 Downloads
Two posterior plantar pads together with the surrounding skin were removed from the hind limb in rats, and one plantar pad each without the surrounding skin was removed from the hind and fore limbs of hedgehogs. As a result of healing of the skin wounds in the rats and hedgehogs, areas of regeneration were formed with the typical stratum papillare of plantar skin. In hedgehogs the regenerating skin covered the restored plantar pad. In rats the plantar pads were not restored.
