Articular Capsule

The articular capsule surrounds the joints between the cartilages of the true ribs and the sternum (breastbone). They are very thin and intimately blended with the radiate sternocostal ligaments, and are strengthened at the upper and lower parts of the articulations by a few fibers that connect the cartilages to the side of the sternum.
