Collagen fibril ultrastructure and course were examined in different connective tissues by PLM, SEM, TEM, and AFM. In tendons, collagen fibrils were large and heterogeneous with a straight subfibrillar arrangement. They ran densely packed, parallel, and straight changing their direction only in periodic crimps where fibrils showed a local deformation (fibrillar crimps). Other tissues such as aponeurosis, fascia communis, skin, aortic wall, and tendon and nerve sheaths showed thinner uniform… CONTINUE READING
