DEEP FASCIA

Anatomy-General

DEEP FASCIA

1. The limbs and body wall are wrapped in a membrane of fibrous tissue, the deep fascia which varies in thickness over the body (eg. it is very thin over the rectus).

2. It never passes freely over bone but is always anchored to the periosteum.

3. The deep fascia serves for attachment of the skin by way of fibrous strands in the subcutaneous tissue.

4. Deep fascia is very sensitive. Its nerve supply, and subcutaneous periosteum, is that of the overlying skin.
