The rib cage is an arrangement of bones in the thorax of all vertebrates except the lamprey and the frog. It is formed by the vertebral column, ribs, and sternum and encloses the heart and lungs. In humans, the rib cage, also known as the thoracic cage, is a bony and cartilaginous structure which surrounds the thoracic cavity and supports the pectoral girdle (shoulder girdle), forming a core portion of the human skeleton. A typical human rib cage consists of 24 ribs, the sternum (with xiphoid process), costal cartilages, and the 12 thoracic vertebrae. Together with the skin and associated fascia and muscles, the rib cage makes up the thoracic wall and provides attachments for the muscles of the neck, thorax, upper abdomen, and back.

  • The rib cage is an arrangement of bones in the thorax of all vertebrates except the lamprey and the frog. It is formed by the vertebral column, ribs, and sternum and encloses the heart and lungs. In humans, the rib cage, also known as the thoracic cage, is a bony and cartilaginous structure which surrounds the thoracic cavity and supports the pectoral girdle (shoulder girdle), forming a core portion of the human skeleton. A typical human rib cage consists of 24 ribs, the sternum (with xiphoid process), costal cartilages, and the 12 thoracic vertebrae. Together with the skin and associated fascia and muscles, the rib cage makes up the thoracic wall and provides attachments for the muscles of the neck, thorax, upper abdomen, and back. (en)

  • La gabbia toracica si trova nella metà anteriore del corpo dei vertebrati, nei tetrapodi tra collo e diaframma ed è costituita dallo sterno, dalle coste e dalle vertebre toraciche. La gabbia toracica protegge meccanicamente fondamentali organi interni e in molte specie partecipa ai movimenti respiratori. Essa contiene al suo interno organi vitali quali cuore e polmoni. In essa sono inoltre contenute le porzioni toraciche dell'esofago, della trachea e dell'aorta. (it)

A caixa torácica contém ao todo 37 ossos: 24 costelas, o manúbrio, o corpo e o processo xifóide de debisineo e as vezes tambem pode proteger as pernas. lt:Krūtinės ląstos ertmė (pt)
