Question

Explain why injured dense regular connective tissue and cartilage are usually slow to heal.

Solution

Verified

Dense regular connective tissue and cartilage are characterized by the fact that they heal slowly. The reason is the lack of nutrients and building substances because those substances cannot be delivered to the place of injury without the presence of blood vessels. Since their nourishment is scarce, because they depend on the diffusion of substances in their environment, from the tissue that is circulating, their healing will be prolonged and long-lasting.
