Superior Angle of Scapula

The superior angle of the scapula is indicated in the diagram.

The scapula is a bone that connects the humerus with the clavicle. The scapula consists of two surfaces:

  1. Costal
  2. Posterior

The scapula has three borders:

  1. Superior
  2. Medial
  3. Lateral

The scapula has three angles:

  1. Superior
  2. Inferior
  3. Lateral

The superior angle of the scapula is covered by the trapezius muscle. It is formed at the point where the medial and lateral borders meet and provides attachment for the levator scapulae muscle and omohyoid muscle.
