Coracoclavicular Ligament

Coracoclavicular Ligament 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.

Acromioclavicular Joint

Acromioclavicular Joint The structure indicated is the acromioclavicular joint. The shoulder joint complex consists of the three joints: Glenohumeral joint Acromioclavicular joint Sternoclavicular 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 Learn more about the shoulder joint in this anatomy tutorial.

Infraspinatus

Infraspinatus The structure indicated is the infraspinatus muscle of the rotator cuff. The infraspinatus muscle is one of the four muscles of the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff muscles are located in the posterior scapula region and serve to stabilise the glenohumeral joint. There are 4 rotator cuff muscles which can be remembered using the mnemonic SITS: Supraspinatus Infraspinatus Teres minor Subscapularis The supraspinatus and infraspinatus, as their names suggest originate in the fossae above and below the spine of the scapula respectively (supraspinatous and infraspinatous fossae). The supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor muscles insert on to the greater tubercle …
