It also acts to rotate the lateral border of the scapula
After reduction locking reconstruction plate put over the lateral border of the scapula
and stabilized using locking screws (Fig.
The lateral border of the scapula
has a pro-jection and it may have distorted the attachment of the omohyoid muscle thereby altering its action.8 The documented variations of the superior transverse sca-pular ligament include calcification partial or comp-lete ossification and multiple bands.9 To study the pathology of suprascapular nerve compression multiple studies have been carried out with particular reference to suprascapular notch par-tial or complete ossification of superior transverse sca-pular ligament.
The likely mechanism for posterior notching is described by Middernarcht and coworkers, who conducted a cadaveric study of 200 scapulae to characterize the geometry of the lateral border of the scapula
and reported that its posterior portion is offset in the glenoid plane.
An approximately 5 cm axial incision is made on the lateral border of the scapula
when a release of the scapula is being planned.
