Tendons and ligaments are complex structures and have different anatomical and dynamic properties. Injury of tendons and ligaments remodel with scar formation with differences in themselves. Although scarring depends on the quality and quantity of the injured tissues, it can be qualified with appropriate rehabilitation. In normal conditions, scar formation prevents returning of normal tendon function because of its structural and biological limitations. It has been shown that reconstruction of injured tendons and ligaments with allografts and autografts in different clinical and experimental studies. Despite of these developments, healing process of both biological and biomechanics of the tendons and ligaments is still have to be investigated.
