Horizontal Fissure of Right Lung

The horizontal fissure of right lung (or transverse fissure) is a fissure separating the superior (upper) lobe from the middle lobe.

The left lung has no middle lobe, so there is no horizontal fissure on that lung.

The Horizontal fissure usually extends from the oblique fissure along the border of the 4th rib.

Famous quotes containing the words lung, horizontal and/or fissure:

    Time is here and you’ll go his way.
    Your lung is waiting in the death market.
    Your face beside me will grow indifferent.
    Darling, you will yield up your belly and be
    cored like an apple.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    And yet out of eternity, a thread
    separates itself on the blackness,
    a horizontal thread
    that fumes a little with pallor upon the dark.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    that part of him that was left behind convulsed in undignified
    Writhed like lightning, and was gone
    Into the black hole, the earth-lipped fissure in the wall-front,
    —D.H. (David Herbert)
