Not illustrated. 1893 edition. Excerpt: ...fibres of the obturator externus and internus muscles by its outer and inner surfaces. Symphysis Pubis.--The two pubic bones are united by an inter-articular fibro-cartilage and four ligaments. The anterior pubic ligament passes in front of the two bones, the superficial fibres interlacing obliquely, and the deeper ones running transversely.

The posterior pubic ligament consists merely of a few scattered fibres. The superior pubic ligament connects the pubic crests. The sub-pubic ligament is a strong band passing from one pubic bone to the other, and arching beneath the symphysis. It is closely related to the dorsal vein of the penis. To see the arrangement of the inter-articular cartilages, a vertical transverse section of the symphysis near its posterior part should be made with the saw. The inter-articular fibro-cartilage intervenes between the roughlygrooved surface of each pubic bone, and is sometimes divided into two lamellae by a small cavity containing fluid. This joint also is an example of amphiarthrosis. TABLE VII.-MUSCLES OF ABDOMEN. Muscle. Obliquus externus Obliquus intemus.. j Transversalis Pyramidalis Rectus abdominis Fascia lumborum ligament...
