Although skeletal muscle is capable of remarkable regenerative potential, when injury is massive and destroys the underlying architecture, regeneration is aborted and is characterized instead by scar tissue formation. The standard of care in such injuries is wound closure, leaving little hope for functional recovery. The promise of regenerative medicine is the full regeneration of damaged tissues, either by pr...
