So in this lecture we've looked at the posterior abdominal wall.
We've looked at the boundary and muscles
that form the substance of the posterior
abdominal wall like the diaphragm,
psoas muscles, quadratus lumborum and iliacus.
We have looked at the origin,
attachment, nerve supply. We then looked
in a bit more detail at the
abdominal aorta and its position,
vascular planes and also
the inferior vena cava. It's positioned
to the right of the aorta
and the tributaries that drain into it.
And then we have looked at the subcostal nerves
and the lumbar plexus, these somatic nerves
that form on the posterior abdominal wall.
