To overcome the issues of muscle autografts, a rolling epimysium conduit that contains a few muscle fibres was recommended.
Note the structural integrity of the medial gastrocnemius (MG) epimysium and of the soleus (SL), indicated by the arrows, and the absence of intramuscular edema.
For proximate analysis, the epimysium was removed from the samples before lyophilization for 48h.
This difficulty was usually caused by the greater image resolution obtained with the linear-array transducer than with the curved-array transducer, because the latter caused excessive accentuation of the connective tissue sheaths that extend from the muscle fascia (epimysium) into the body of the muscle (perimysium).
For both extensors and flexors, proximal muscle repairs are usually limited to epimysium and perimysium.
In the ultrasonography, the fascicles were shown as hypoechogenicity or medium echogenicity, surrounded by epimysium, fascia, and adipose tissue shown as hyperechogenicity of strips and streaks (Figure 1).
The ld cut was trimmed to remove residual adipose tissue and epimysium. A steak, 2.5 cm thick, was removed from the ld cut and used to determine 48 h drip loss at 0-4[degrees]C by the bag method according to Honikel and Hamm (1999).
To help explain muscle structure, have a bunch of pencils and plastic wrap to make the endomysium, perimysium, and epimysium. Using a Tootsie Roll, the candy is the muscle, the paper is epimysium, and ends of the paper are tendons.
No count: Space, nerve, artifact, epimysium, wall or lumen of vessel larger than capillary.
