Above vs. below the umbilicus
By Yasna W. on 09. July 2019 for Rectus Sheath II – Anterolateral Abdominal Wall

The description of the layers of tissue above vs. below the arcuate line has been explained to us in the PA anatomy class, yet remained unclear. After the visuals and the step-by-step walk through in your lecture, finally, I understand! Thank you! :)
