The Aponeuroses are white, shining membranes, very resisting, and composed of fibres interlaced. Some are continuous with the muscular fibres, and differ only from tendons by their flat form. They are called Aponeuroses of insertion, (F.) Aponeuroses d' insertion, when they are at the extremities of muscles, and attach them to the bone ;-Aponeuroses of intersection, (F.) Aponeuroses d' intersection, if they interrupt the continuity of the muscle, and are continuous on both sides with muscular fibres. Others surround the muscle, and prevent its displacement: they are called enveloping Aponeuroses, (F.) Aponeuroses d' enveloppe.
