Change in expression of genes associated with macrophage polarization in FDP tendons 7 days post operatively. M2 stimulator genes: a IL-4, b IL-13, and c IL-10. M2 marker genes: d MRC1 and e CD163. M1 stimulator genes: f IFNG, g IL-1B, h TNFA, and i IL-6. M1 marker: j NOS2. *P <0.05 between indicated groups. # P < 0.05 and a P < 0.095, respectively, compared with normal tendons.
