Structure of connective tissue or skeleton of microcirculation is presented by rings of dense connective tissue around the main microvessels and their large branches. From the rings of the outline network branch the trabecules with terminal arterioles and collecting venules, towards the network of the metabolic microvessels. They branch, thin and disperse into loose connective tissue in alveoles, surrounded by capillaries. The alveoles of the metabolic network are filled with dense network of thin and differently directed fibers of connective tissue and hydrophilic amorphous substance; they form the walls of the tissue channels. Skeleton of microcirculation, besides its supporting function, can also act as an external cuff for the metabolic microvessels and tissue channels: limit the «spreading» of the tissue fluid from the alveoles of the metabolic network and direct its current from the tissue channels into the metabolic microvessels with different wall permeability. Apparently, the microcirculation has a modeling effect on stroma´s fibro-architectonics in its area, till the inclusion of the differentiating connective tissue into the vessel wall. Histo- and morphogenesis of the microcirculatory soft skeleton at different levels of its organization resembles a transition of the bone tissue from fibrous to lamellar, spongy and compact.
