The ultrastructure of intact and injured hand muscles were examined during and after operations in tourniquet ischemia of 12 patients, in connection with tendon and nerve reconstruction. Muscle specimina were taken partly in the beginning of the ischemia period, and partly at the end of it, every 15-20 min. The muscle specimina were examined by electron microscope. It was found that in the first 2 hr of ischemia, neither the intact muscles, nor those previously injured, showed any demonstrable damage.
