The Transversus perinei profundus
(or deep transverse perineal
) arises from the inferior rami of the ischium
and runs to the median line, where it interlaces in a tendinous raphé
with its fellow of the opposite side.
It lies in the same plane as the Sphincter urethræ membranaceæ; formerly the two muscles were described together as the Constrictor urethrae.
