Some Aspects of Regeneration in Skeletal and Cardiac Muscle

  • Bruce M. Carlson
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSA, volume 172)


Although there are superficial similarities between skeletal and cardiac muscle, the differences between their regenerative response to injury appear to outweigh the similarities. The regeneration of skeletal and cardiac muscle is compared with respect to cellular origins’ vascular and neural relations, morphogenesis and aging influences.
