Anteriorly, the abdominal wall includes the rectus abdominis muscles, and the aponeuroses of the three muscles (the external and internal oblique and the transversus) that form much of the side of the abdomen. Posteriorly, the lumbar vertebrae and intervertebral discs project anteriorward (fig. 25-2).
