Flashcards in Intertransverse Ligament Deck (8):
1

What is the classification of the intertransverse ligament-transverse process joint?

fibrous (amphiarthrosis) syndesmosis

2

What will the intertransverse ligament be attached to?

the transverse tubercles and transverse processes of adjacent vertebrae along the vertebral column from C1 to L5

3

What is the status of the cervical intertransverse ligament?

it is said to be paired with an anterior and a posterior intertransverse ligament present

4

What is the status of the thoracic intertransverse ligament?

- it is said to blend with muscles of the deep back
- a separate ligament may not exist

5

What is the status of the lumbar intertransverse ligament?

it is well developed with two parts identified: a ventral slip and a dorsal slip

6

Where in the vertebral column is the intertransverse ligament best developed?

the lumbar region

7

What forms the ventral slip of the intertransverse ligament in the lumbar spine?

- a membranous partition from the vertebral body covers the intervertebral foramen and extends back to the transverse process to form a ventral slip
- it is penetrated by the contents of the intervertebral foramen

8

What forms the dorsal slip of the intertransverse ligament in the lumbar spine?

a thick partition extends from the lamina and articular processes and extends laterally to blend with the ventral slip to form a septum separating the anterior muscles from the posterior muscles of the body wall
