|Root of penis|
The constituent cavernous cylinders of the penis.
Vertical section of bladder, penis, and urethra.
Each crus is covered by the Ischiocavernosus, while the bulb is surrounded by the Bulbospongiosus.
- The fundiform ligament springs from the front of the sheath of the Rectus abdominis and the linea alba; it splits into two fasciculi which encircle the root of the penis.
- The upper fibers of the suspensory ligament pass downward from the lower end of the linea alba, and the lower fibers from the pubic symphysis; together they form a strong fibrous band, which extends to the upper surface of the root, where it blends with the fascial sheath of the organ.
