The structure indicated is the coracoclavicular ligament
The coracoclavicular ligament is one of the ligaments which stabilises the acromioclavicular joint
. The acromioclavicular joint is formed between the acromion
of the scapula and the clavicle. It is a small synovial joint that is stabilised by the following ligaments:
- Acromioclavicular ligament (consists of superior and inferior parts)
- Coracoclavicular ligaments
The coracoclavicular ligaments consist of two parts
- Trapezoid ligament
- Conoid ligament
The coracoclavicular ligament, as the name suggests connects the clavicle to the coracoid process of the scapula.
