Example text

It will be some time before such methods can be used to show the entire fascial system, for it would include (as Fig. 1C does not, but Fig. 1B does) the cotton wool infusing each and every muscle, as well as the perineural system of oligodendrocytes, Schwann cells, and glial cells and attendant fats which permeate the nervous system, as well as the complex of bags, ligaments, and spider webs that contain, fix, and organize the ventral organ systems. If we could then take such a rendition into motion, we would see the forces of tension and compression shifting across these sheets and planes, being met and accommodated in all normal movements.

8). Reticulin is a very fine fiber, a kind of immature collagen that predominates in the embryo but is largely replaced by collagen in the adult. Elastin, as its name implies, is employed in areas such as the ear, skin, or particular ligaments where elasticity is required. Collagen, by far the most common protein in the body, predominates in the fascial net, and is readily seen - indeed, unavoidable - in any dissection or even any cut of meat. There are around 20 types of collagen fiber, but the distinctions need not concern us here, and Type 1 is by far the most ubiquitous in the structures under discussion.

23). Fig. 23 (A) Vesalius shows the fibrous net in the familiar way - as a layer of muscles - but the overlying layers of fascial fabric have been removed. (B) The second view shows a deeper layer of musculature; fascial septa would fill in all the gaps and lines among the muscles. In (B), notice the black line extending from the bottom of the diaphragm to the inside arch of the foot, and compare it to the Deep Front Line (see Ch. 9). (Reproduced with permission from Saunders JB, O'Malley C. ) 27 If we were to render all tissues invisible in the human body except the fibrillar elements of the connective tissue - principally collagen, but with some added elastin and reticulin - we would see the entire body, inside and out, in a fashion similar to the neural and vascular nets, though the areas of density would once again differ.
