6

scapular sliding along thoracic wall occurs along...

scapulothoracic joint (hypothetical joint)

7

abduction of humerus above head cuases...

lateral rotation of scaupla

8

Serratus Anterior Muscle

Origin: lateral parts of ribs 1-8

Insertion: anterior surface of medial border of scapula

Function: Stabilizes scapular, laterally rotates scapula, protracts scapula

Innervation: Long thoracic nerve (C5-C7)

9

Winged Scaupla

  • Long thoracic nerve trauma
  • unable to clamp/stabilize scaupla against thoracic wall
  • unable to abduct arm above head b/c glenoid cavity cannot be laterally rotated

10

General groups of shoulder muscles

  1. Superficial posterior shoulder muscles
  2. Deep posterior shoulder muscles
  3. Scapulohumeral muscles

11

Superficial posterior shoulder muscles (Extrinsic shoulder muscles)

  1. Trapezius
  2. Latissimus

12

Deep Posterior Shoulder Muscles

  1. Levator scapula
  2. Rhomboids (major/minor)

13

Levator Scapula

Function: elevates, rotates scapula; tilts glenoid cavity inferiorly 

Innervation: dorsal scapular nerve (C5)

 

14

Rhomboids (major and minor)

Function: retract and rotate scapula; tilt glenoid cavity inferiorly

Innervation: dorsal scapular nerve (C5)

15

Scapulohumeral muscles

  1. Deltoid
  2. Teres Major
  3. Supraspinatus
  4. Infraspinatus
  5. Subscapularis
  6. Teres Minor

 

  • All muscles pass from scapula to humerus and act on shoulder joint
  • stabilize humerus head in glenoid cavity

Deltoid

Origin: Clavicle, acromion, spine of scapula

Insertion: deltoid tuberosity of humerus

Function: principal abductor of arm

Innervation: Axillary nerve (C5-C6)

A image thumb
17

Teres Major

Origin: Scapula

Insertion: intertubercular groove (bicipital groove) of humerus

Function: adducts and medially rotates arm

Innervation: lower subscapular nerve (C5-C6)

18

Muscles of Rotator Cuff

  1. Supraspinatus
  2. Infraspinatus
  3. Teres minor
  4. Subscapularis 
  • Insertion: musculotendinous rotator cuff
  • Function: protect shoulder joint; stabilize humeral head 
  • Mnemonic: SITS

Supraspinatus Muscle

Origin: supraspinous fossa

Insertion: superios facet of greater tubercule

Function: arm abduction

Innervation: suprascauplar nerve (C5&C6)

20

Infraspinatus Muslce

Origin: Infraspinous fossa

Insertion: middle facet of greater tubercle

Function: Lateral rotation of arm

Innervation:  suprascauplar nerve (C5&C6)

21

Teres Minor

Origin: Lateral border of scaupla

Insertion: inferior facet of greater tubercle

Function: Laterally rotates arm

Innervation: Axillary nerve 

A image thumb
22

Subscapularis

Origin: Subscapular fossa

Insertion: Leser tubercle

Function: Medially rotates and adducts arm

Innervation: Upper and lower subscapular nerves (C5 & C6)

23

Subacromial Bursae (subacromial and subdeltoid bursae)

  • synovial fluid filled sacs that helps reduce friction btwn muscles/bone during shoulder movements

24

Gateways to Posterior Scapular Region

  1. Suprascapular notch/foramen
  2. Quadrangular space
  3. Trigangular Space
  4. Triangular interval
  • These allow neurovascular structures to move between anterior and posterior scapular/arm regions

A image thumb
25

Suprascapular Notch

  • located on superior border of scapula
  • superior transverse scapular ligament spans the roof of this forming a foramen
  • Suprascapular nerve passes through foramen and innervates infraspinatus muscles 
  • Subscapular artery passes over this ligament
  • ligament can ossify and compress scauplar nerve --> shoulder pain

26

Quadrangular Space

  • Bounded by
    • Teres Major
    • Teres Minor
    • Long head of triceps
    • Surgical neck of humerus
  • Contains Axillary nerve and Posterior circumflex humeral artery

A image thumb
27

Triangular Space

  • Bounded by
    • Teres Major
    • Teres Minor
    • Long head of triceps
  • Contains circumflex scapular artery (branch of subscauplar artery)

Dermatome

  • Representations of which spinal nerve root innervates which region of skin
  • tell you which level dorsal root accepts sensory information from a particular part of body
  • cell bodies of these sensory neurons reside in dorsal root ganglion

29

Shingles

  • Herpes zoster is virus that makes chicken pox in children
  • in some patients remains dormant in dorsal root ganglion 
  • can become active, travel along nerve fibers to dermatome supplied by that nerve
  • rash erupts --> painful shingles
