Table 2 Histological parameters and semi-quantitative scoring system for day 2 wounds

From: The effect of color type on early wound healing in farmed mink (Neovison vison)

Scale Epithelialization PMNL a MM b Fibroblasts Endothelial cell activity
0 No proliferation at wound edge No or very few cells present No or very few cells present No or very few plump fibroblasts present No vessels with plump endothelial cells
1 Hyperplasia/hypertrophy at wound edge Few cells or focal pattern, ≤40% of total cellularity ≤20% of total cellularity ≥50% spindle cells, ≤50% plump fibroblasts ≤50% vessels with plump endothelial cells
2 Migration of cells over wound bed Numerous cells present in all layers, ≥40% of total cellularity ≥20% of total cellularity ≥50% plump fibroblasts, ≤50% spindle cells ≥50% vessels with plump endothelial cells
  1. apolymorphonuclear leukocytes; bmonocytes/tissue macrophages
