Table 1 Total cell density and myofibroblast cell density in the samples of healing ACL tissue (mean ± sd)

From: Histological characteristics of ligament healing after bio-enhanced repair of the transected goat ACL

  Suture Suture-SIS
  Healing Control Healing Control
Number of cells per mm2 1265 ± 1034 254 ± 92 954 ± 378* 204 ± 93*
Number of myofibroblast per mm2 642 ± 564 52 ± 22 266 ± 229 36 ± 15
Ratio myofibroblast/total cell density 49% 20% 26% 19%
  1. The difference between Suture-SIS and Control was statistically significant (*paired Student t-test, p < 0.05). There was no statistical difference between the Suture and Suture-SIS group.
