The Ligaments connecting the Transverse Processes The intertransverse ligaments are but poorly developed.
In the thoracic region they form small rounded bundles, and in the lumbar they are flat membranous bands, unimportant as bonds of union. They consist of fibers passing between the apices of the transverse processes. In the cervical region they are replaced by the inter-transversarii muscles.
The arterial supply for the column comes from twigs of the vertebral, ascending pharyngeal, ascending cervical, superior and aortic intercostals, lumbar, ilio-lumbar, and lateral sacral.
