Other Terms: Superior vertebral incisure, Superior vertebral incisure of pedicle, Incisura vertebralis superior, Incisure vertébrale supérieure
The superior vertebral notches are shallow and not very recognizable. They form weak impressions on the superior surface of the pedicle anterior to the superior articular facet. When combined with the superjacent vertebra they form the intervertebral foramen for passage of the spinal nerve.
The term notch refers to an indentation in the margin of a bone. The Latin equivalent for this term is incisure.
