Posterior surface of sternum.
The xiphisternal joint (or xiphisternal synchondrosis) is a location near the bottom of the sternum, where the body of the sternum and the xiphoid process meet. This joint can remain until the middle years of life, but usually ossifies to form a synostosis between the two sternal elements.
It is in line with the T9 vertebra.
