Figure 2: Three days postoperatively. (a) Control group: Growth of epithelial tongue in vertical direction (arrow) with infiltration of large number of inflammatory cells and blood vessels in the connective tissue (H and E, ×20). (b) Study group: Growth of full thickness epithelial tongue in a horizontal direction (arrow) with less number of inflammatory cells infiltration and blood vessels in the connective tissue (H and E, ×20). Six days postoperatively. (c) Control group: Growth of thin epithelium bellow the necrosis/scab (arrows) with closure of wound region. (d) Study group: The newly formed thick stratified squamous epithelium with rete pegs formation covering the connective tissue (H and E, ×40)
