Epimysium

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Epimysium is a layer of connective tissue which wraps around an entire muscle. It is continuous with fascia and other connective tissue muscle sheaths, which encludes the endomysium, and perimysium. It is also continuous with tendons where it becomes thicker and collagenous. The Epimysium protects muscles from friction against other muscles and bones.
