Wound Fibrosis

Wound fibrosis or fibrotic scaring is a pathological wound healing characterized by scarring and hardening of tissues and organs. It is a process that occurs when wound healing has gone wrong. In wound fibrosis, connective tissue replaces normal parenchymal tissue to such an extent that it is left unchecked, leading to tissue remodeling and permanent scar tissue formation. Repeated trauma, chronic inflammation, and repair are susceptible to wound fibrosis. Fibrosis occurs in many tissues in the body due to inflammation or damage, including the lungs, liver, kidney, brain, and heart.
