It originates from the spinous processes of the lower six thoracic vertebrae and the posterior third of the iliac crest. Between these two attachments, it fuses with the thoracolumbar fascia, and can have muscular slips of origin from the lower three or four ribs.

The patient is shown on the operating table in the lateral decubitus position, ready for either a serratus anterior or latissimus dorsi transplant. The entire extremity is draped free and rests on a well-padded Mayo stand. The surgeon should position the patient in a way that avoids stretching of the brachial plexus. The area prepared includes the spinous processes of the vertebrae; the thigh is included if it is needed as a donor site for a split-thickness skin graft. a b. The important structures are marked.
