1

What are the ligaments of the shoulder joint?

Coracohumeral ligament, glenohumeral ligaments, transverse humeral ligament

2

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.

Coracohumeral ligament

3

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.

Glenohumeral ligaments

4

Consists of a narrow sheet of connective tissue fibers that runs between the lesser and the greater tubercles of the humerus.

Transverse humeral ligament

5

A nodule or small eminence, especially one on a bone for attachment of a tendon

Tubercle

6

Attached along the margin of the glenoid cavity and forms a rim with a thin, free edge that deepens the cavity; composed of fibrocartilage

Glenoid labrum

7

The bursa between the joint capsule and the tendon of the subscapularis muscle

Subscapular bursa

8

The bursa between the joint capsule and the deep surface of the deltoid muscle

Subdeltoid bursa

9

The bursa between the joint capsule and the coracoid process of the scapula

Subcoracoid bursa

10

The bursa between the joint capsule and the undersurface of the acromion process of the scapula

Subacromial bursa

11

Which bursa is usually continuous with the synovial cavity?

Subscapular bursa

12

The shoulder joint is capable of which type of movements?

Flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, rotation, and circumduction
