1 Scapular Region

2 Objectives Know the principal muscles of the scapular and scapulo-humeral regions. Understand the mechanism of scapular rotation in relation with shoulder movements.

3 Surface Anatomy Spine Acromion (of scapula Trapezius muscle
Infraspinatus muscle Triangle of ascultation Teres minor muscle Teres major muscle

4 Anterior Scapula. -angles, borders -glenoid cavity, -acromion,
-coracoid process, -Subscapular fossa Humerus. -Head, -Surgical neck -Anatomical neck -Greater tubercle -Lesser tubercle -Intertubercular (bicipital) groove acromion anatomical neck coracoid process Lesser tubercule Greater tubercule surgical neck bicipital groove glenoid cavity

5 Posterior Clavicle. Acromioclavicular joint Scapula. - Spine
- Acromion - Supraspinous fossa - Infraspinous fossa Humerus. - Head - Anatomical neck, - Surgical neck, - Deltoid tuberosity - Spiral (radial) groove. Acromioclavicular joint Supraspinous Fossa anatomical neck surgical neck Spine Deltoid Tuberosity Infraspinous Fossa Radial Groove

6 Superior rotation of Glenoid fossa: Powerful muscles
pull on bony struts. Scapula rotates when we move our arms to allow more range of motion at the shoulder joint

7 Complete abduction at the shoulder joint requires
superior rotation of the scapula so that the glenoid fossa faces superiorly. Glenoid fossa


9 Deltoid Clavicular origin, acromial, and scapular origins, attach all to deltoid tuberosity Anterior fibers flexes Posterior fibers extends and laterally rotates Middle fibers abducts the arm Innervation C5,6 Axillary nerve Delta= Triangle Deltoid=triangular in shape Principal abductors= Deltoid, supraspinatus

10 Subdeltoid / Subacromial bursa.
Subdeltoid Bursa Subscapularis Bursa: a closed sac or envelope, lined with synovium and containing fluid, usually in areas subject to friction.

11 Rotator cuff muscles stabilize the shoulder joint.
Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Subscapularis, Teres minor Subscapularis Subscapularis Anterior view Supraspinatus Infraspinatus Superior view Teres Minor Posterior view

12 Rotator Cuff Muscles Because the scapula is triangular deep bone, padded with thick muscles, injuries leading to scapular fractures Will be so severe , and most commonly we will have lots of multiple, or serious other fractures

13 Transverse scapular ligament
Runs between Subscapular nerve (C5,6) and artery, which supply Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus muscles Artery above, nerve below

14 Serratus Anterior Winged Scapula: (long thoracic nerve)
Subscapularis Winged Scapula: (long thoracic nerve) "big swing muscle" or "boxer's muscle” Antagonist of Rhomboids Accessory muscle of respiration

15 - retract / inferior rotate scapula
Posterior view: - Trapezius - Latissimus Dorsi - Deltoid Trapezius Rhomboids Deltoid Rhomboids: - minor and major - retract / inferior rotate scapula Teres Major Latissimus Dorsi Teres major: - inserts near latissimus dorsi - adduct / medially rotate arm

16 Posterior scapula Rhomboids retract, so injury to the dorsal scapular nerve will make the scapula further away from the midline on the affected side
