The healing of a tendon wound is accompanied by a vascular reaction consisting of formation and later transformation of new vessels in the peritendinous tissue. The vascular anatomy is restored to normal in about 8 weeks. The vascular system of the tendon itself plays only u minor role in the healing, but it is affected by the method of suture used. In autologous tendon transplantation, the original vascular system of the graft survives the operation and is not subjected to any changes during the healing process. In homologous tendon transplantation, the original vascular system of the graft survives the operation until the 14th postoperative day. Then a rejection of the grafts vessels takes place. Revaseularization of the graft is brought about by ingrowth of newly formed vessels from the peritendinous tissue. The vascular anatomy is restored to normal in 12 weeks.
