PMID:  3280056     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The influence of mechanical forces on intact tissue is well established. A growing body of evidence demonstrates that healing wounds also respond to the functional demands of their mechanical environment. At the present time, an understanding of the fundamental mechanism by which mechanical stress affects tissues and wounds remains elusive.
