Costal cartilage 10

Other Terms: Costal cartilage of rib, Cartilago costalis, Cartilage costal

Description

The tenth costal cartilage is shorter and narrower than its predecessor. It ascends obliquely upward from the tenth rib and narrows to a pointed projection anteriorly, which attaches to the inferior margin of the ninth rib via a fibrous joint. In some individuals the tenth costal cartilage can be free and floating like the ribs eleven and twelve. The transversus abdominis muscle attaches to its anterior surface.
