Description of the sternal measurements

Measurement Abbreviation Description
Manubrium length MBL The distance from the center of the jugular notch of the manubrium and the manubriosternal junction [12, 14].
Manubrium width MBW The midpoint of the first costal cartilage facet on each side [14, 15].
Mesosternum length MSL The distance from the manubriosternal junction to the mesoxiphoidal junction [12, 14].
Combined length of manubrium and mesosternum CMM The straight distance from the center of the jugular notch of the manubrium and the mesoxiphoidal junction [12, 14].
Intercostal 2nd–3rd ICL23 The distance from the center of costal cartilage of 2nd rib and the center cartilage of 3rd rib [12].
Intercostal 3rd–4th ICL34 The distance from the center of costal cartilage of 3rd rib and the center cartilage of 4th rib [12].
Intercostal 4th–5th ICL45 The distance from the center of costal cartilage of the 4th rib and the center cartilage of the 5th rib [12].
Corpus sterni width at 1st sternebra CSWS1 The distance at the midpoint between the costal cartilage of 2nd rib and the costal cartilage 3rd rib on each side [15].
Corpus sterni width at 3rd sternebra CSWS3 The distance at the midpoint between the costal cartilage of 4th rib and the costal cartilage 5th rib on each side [15].
Sternal index SI Calculated by the division of Manubrium length by Mesosternum length and multiplied by 100 ([MBL/MSL]×100) [15].
Sternal area SA Calculated by multiplying the sum of Manubrium Length and Mesosternum Length with the sum of Manubrium Width, Corpus sterni width at first sternebra, and Corpus sterni width at third sternebra divided by three ([MBL+MSL]×[MBW+CSWS1+CSWS3]/3) [15].
