Ridged Band
SPECIALIZED TISSUE OF THE PENIS
Fig. 5
Figure 5. Frenulum and ridged band. The frenulum is a thin fold of mucosa between the foreskin and glans. It is attached to the midline (raphe) of the glans, very close to the external opening of the urethra (urinary passage). This connection is made possible by the deep notch in the undersurface of the glans. Note: the frenulum blends into the ridged band of the foreskin and this provides a link between several important sensory structures.
