Background: Whether the composition of palatal connective tissue grafts (CTGs) varies depending on donor site or harvesting technique in terms of relative amounts of fibrous connective tissue (CT) and fatty/glandular tissue (FGT) is currently unknown and is histologically assessed in the present study. Methods: In 10 fresh human cadavers, tissue...

... However, it is not sufficient to analyse solely the quantity of soft tissue; previous research has shown that good tissue quality (e.g., tissue rich in lamina propria) is crucial for surgical success. The layers of palatal soft tissue include the epithelium (approximately 0.30 -0.44 mm thick), the connective tissue with the lamina propria (0.8 -1.5 mm thick), and the submucosal tissue with its fatty component [43,44]. It should be highlighted that the present study focused on the quantitative analysis of palatal soft tissue with 3D imaging to provide information about the anatomical conditions of the entire palate, but it did not investigate tissue quality. ...
