Neurovascular sheath | definition of neurovascular sheath by Medical dictionary
fibrous tissue enveloping and binding together arteries, their accompanying veins (venae comitantes) and nerves that run together; often it is merely the adventitious tissue of the neurovascular structures but may be highly developed as a distinct fascial layer (for example, in the case of the carotid and axillary sheaths).
