Mathematical models of soft tissue injury repair : towards understanding musculoskeletal disorders
Dunster, Joanne L. (2012) Mathematical models of soft tissue injury repair : towards understanding musculoskeletal disorders. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The process of soft tissue injury repair at the cellular lew I can be decomposed into three phases: acute inflammation including coagulation, proliferation and remodelling. While the later phases are well understood the early phase is less so. We produce a series of new mathematical models for the early phases coagulation and inflammation. The models produced are relevant not only to soft tissue injury repair but also to the many disease states in which coagulation and inflammation play a role.
