Flashcards in Chapter 8 - Examples of Synovial Joints - Shoulder Joints Deck (12)
What are the ligaments of the shoulder joint?
Coracohumeral ligament, glenohumeral ligaments, transverse humeral ligament
Is composed of a broad band of connective tissue that connects the coracoid process of the scapula to the greater tubercle of the humerus. It strengthens the superior portion of the joint capsule.
Include three bands of fibers that appear as thickenings in the ventral wall of the joint capsule. They extend from the edge of the glenoid cavity to the lesser tubercle and the anatomical neck of the humerus.
Consists of a narrow sheet of connective tissue fibers that runs between the lesser and the greater tubercles of the humerus.
Transverse humeral ligament
A nodule or small eminence, especially one on a bone for attachment of a tendon
Attached along the margin of the glenoid cavity and forms a rim with a thin, free edge that deepens the cavity; composed of fibrocartilage
The bursa between the joint capsule and the tendon of the subscapularis muscle
The bursa between the joint capsule and the deep surface of the deltoid muscle
The bursa between the joint capsule and the coracoid process of the scapula
The bursa between the joint capsule and the undersurface of the acromion process of the scapula
Which bursa is usually continuous with the synovial cavity?
