T13 - T XIII

描述

The thoracic vertebrae form the thoracic spine, a slightly dorsoconvex bony rod, characterized by its limited flexibility. The main differences between other vertebrae (cervical and lumbar) are:

  • Articulations with the ribs that correspond in number
  • Short bodies with flattened extremities
  • Short articular processes
  • Vertebral arches closely fitting (no real interarcual spaces)
  • Long spinous process
  • Costal facets on the transverse processes and cranial and caudal costal fovea on the extremities of the vertebral bodies
