The rectus sheath has been extensively described in gross anatomic studies but there is very little information available regarding the arcuate line (AL). The aim of the present study therefore was to explore and delineate the morphology, topography and morphometry of the arcuate line and provide a comprehensive picture of its anatomy across a broad range of specimens. The AL was present in all specimens examined. In addition, the AL was found to be located at a mean of 70.2% (67.3-75.2%) of… Expand
