COMPARISON OF LAMINAR STRUCTURE OF SOMATIC AND VISCERAL ARTERIES (Abstract): Fasciocutaneous or myocutaneous free flaps in conjunction with autologous vessels graft procedures are ideal for cover large and deep soft tissue defects. Vascular reconstruction by vein or artery grafts is standard methods to improve tissue perfusion in critical limb defects. The transfer non-muscular but well-vascularized tissue (such as the great omentum), can solve an infection that is already installed. Using the visceral arteries (omental) in reconstructive procedures at the level of limbs stimulated us to deepen local vascular anatomy in order to avoid or limit some technical problems that arise in case of a bypass or microvascular anastomoses. Quantification of the thickness of each of the three tunics of the somatic and visceral arteries studied was performed by a professional program. All three tunics of the arterial wall retain the same sense of the percentage in all arteries studied, but in different value levels. The epiploic grafts have effect by filling the lack of soft tissue limb, and the angiogenic capacity too, thus replacing the angiogenic therapy by patient’s own tissue.
