Deep Fasciae

a. The deep fasciae include various membranes made of consolidated or dense FCT. A deep fascia envelops the entire body as the third envelope. This third envelope is known as the investing deep fascia. It is beneath the skin and subcutaneous layer.

b. Deep fasciae also include the envelopes of the muscles and other organs. Around individual organs (for example, the kidney), it is called a capsule.

c. Another form of deep fascia is found in the collections of loose areolar FCT and fat that are found as filling among the organs. Similar deep fasciae attach organs to the body wall.
