BACKGROUND The mechanisms by which the abdominal muscles move and control the lumbosacral spine are not clearly understood. Descriptions of abdominal morphology are also conflicting and the regional anatomy of these muscles has not been comprehensively examined. The aim of this study was to investigate the morphology of regions of transversus abdominis and obliquus internus and externus abdominis. METHODS Anterior and posterolateral abdominal walls were dissected bilaterally in 26 embalmed… CONTINUE READING
