give me a labelled diagram of rib cage.

Ribs − 12 pairs

Connects dorsally to the vertebral column
Connects ventrally to the sternum

True Ribs: First 7 pairs; they connect both dorsally and ventrally to the vertebrae and the sternum respectively via the hyaline cartilage

False (vertebrochondral) Ribs: 8th, 9th and 10th pairs; do not connect to the sternum directly, but connect indirectly through the seventh rib

Floating Ribs: 11th and 12th pairs; do not connect ventrally

Rib cage = Thoracic vertebra + Ribs + Sternum

  • 1

Rib cage in humans is as above

  • 0
