The ultrastructural picture of the intact and injured hand muscles has been examined by the authors during and after operations in tourniquet ischaemia of 12 patients, in connection with tendon and nerve reconstruction. Muscle specimina were taken partly in the beginning of the ischaemization, and partly at the end ot it, every 15--20 minutes, and the muscle specimina have been examined by means of electron microscope. It has been found that in the first 2 hours of ischaemia neither the intact muscles, nor those previously injured suffer demonstrable damage.
