The fibrous pericardium is attached to the posterior surface of the sternum by the superior and inferior sterno-pericardiac ligaments (sternopericardial ligaments); the upper passing to the manubrium, and the lower to the xiphoid process.
The bronchopericardial membrane is a group of connective tissue in the posterior mediastinum, forming strong fiber bands that connect the root of the lung, the bifucration of the trachea and that radiate across the wall of the inferior vena cava and to posterior part of t he tendinous center of the diaphragm.
