CODE 2469 2200


t is located in the abdominal region, and consists of the muscles and fasciae integrating the abdominal wall.

This cut is prepared from a hindquarter 3 ribs. After the m. Cutaneous has been separated, the tail of rump (m. Tensor fasciae latae) is removed by cutting through the connective tissue between such muscle and the abdominals. The cut goes on up to the ventral edge of the striploin (m. Longissimus dorsi), continuing parallel to that muscle reaching the caudal edge of the 13 th rib, proceeding towards the e ventral end of the last 3 ribs thus separating the whole piece. After that, all heavy connective tissue and fat excess are subjected to the conventional trimming process.

Those points where abdominal muscles are attached, directly or by means of tendons and fasciae to the bones, may be considered skeletal components. That is the distal and external edges of the last ribs and their corresponding cartilage, the transverse processes of lumbar vertebrae, ilium, coxal tuberosity and pubic bone.

M. Obliquus externus abdominis, m. Obliquus internus abdominis, m. Transversus abdominis and, m. Rectus abdominis.
