Abstract: PURPOSE:To assess the collagen content and types in the rectus abdominis muscle of cadavers of different ages. METHODS: Forty fresh adult male cadavers, at room temperature, were obtained from the Institute of Legal Medicine of Franca and dissected within 24 hours of death. The cadavers were divided into two groups: Group A (n=20), 18 to 30 years of age, and Group B (n=20), 31 to 60 years of age. Bilateral incisions were made in the middle portion of anterior rectus sheath 3 cm superiorly and 2 cm inferiorly t… Show more

“…Muscle collagen has multiple mechanical, immune, and tissue repair functions. It also plays an important part in the transmission of forces resulting from active muscle contraction 3,5 . Collagen is an important component of muscles and fasciae that provides strength to the structures [6][7][8][9] .…”

“…In fact, as the scar formation proceeds, implant region become stronger for a continuous synthesis of Collagen and substitution of the immature Type III Collagen by mature Type I. The remodeling process is typical of the healing, corresponding to the latest phase of implant . In our experimentation CMC and controls show a greater expression of young Collagen Type III respect to Type I.…”

“…In the anterior sheath of the rectus muscle, there are bundles of oblique fibril, whereas in the posterior sheath prevail the bundles of transverse fibril. These collagen fibers, present in the fascia and muscles, are important stabilizing components of the abdominal wall, whose orientation influences the mechanical characteristics of the tissue, being determinant for the resistance of these structures 26 , 27 .…”
