Fig. 5.3 Here we see a dissection, taken from an embalmed cadaver, of the Lateral
Line, including the peroneals (fibularii), connecting tissues at the lateral knee, the
iliotibial tract and abductors, which are fascially continuous with the lateral abdominal
obliques. The ribs from the sternochondral junction in the front to the angle of the ribs
posteriorly are included with their corresponding intercostal layers. The scalenes,
attached to the upper two ribs, are included, but the quadratus lumborum is not. The
upper two muscles, the sternocleidomastoid and splenii looking like a chevron, do not
attach to the rest of the specimen because they both attach interiorly near or at the
midline, and the specimen takes only about 30° each side from the coronal midline.
