The issue of tendon healing concerns the scientific community for more than 50 years. Initially, Skoog and Peterson at 1954 proposed that tendons did not have the ability for intrinsic healing and that cell migration from the surrounding tissue is necessary. Ten years later, Eiken et al. suggested that intrinsic healing was possible, and that was confirmed by Lundborg and Rank.
