This artery gave rise to two branches, one to the costal part of the diaphragm and the other to the suprarenal gland.
This suggestion is based on the observation that locomotion was the primitive function of the hypaxial muscles that are responsible for costal ventilation in modern amniotes.
The first rib may be shorter than usual, slender and connected with the second costal cartilage.
Physical examination confirmed a mass occupying the entire right side of the abdomen, which extended below both the costal margin and the iliac crest.
The left leg electrode is positioned in the anterior axillary line, halfway between the costal margin and the crest of the ilium.
However, costal patterns and umbilical shape could vastly improve these capacities.
There are no transverse costal pits on the transverse processes of the eleventh and twelfth vertebrae.
The serratus anterior muscle usually arises from the first through eighth or ninth ribs and inserts onto the costal surface of the scapula, from its superior to its inferior angle.
They found that obliteration grade and costal pleural fibrosis score were significantly higher for the treated sides in the mechanical abrasion dogs, compared with the talc slurry-treated dogs.
The transverse process of the seventh vertebra may be bifid, and occasionally the costal process is replaced by a cervical rib.
