Prior cadaveric shoulder rotator experiments showed that 90Adeg of external shoulder rotator abduction creates instability due to a lack of participation by the biceps brachialis, coracobrachialis, anterior deltoid, major pectoral, and subscapularis, all of which could favour stabilisation of the glenohumeral girdle.21 Furthermore, the ER are susceptible to major fatigue, which could be a source of variability during strength generation tests.22 Stabilisation straps typically increases reliability in strength as shown in related studies.23 FED does not have its own stabilisation straps.
There have been numerous descriptions of muscular variations in the axillary region, in the axillary fossa or in the walls that form it, including Langer's axillary arch which is a muscle-fascial arch that originates in the lateral edge of the latissimus dorsi muscle and passes in front of the axillary vessels and nerves to join the fascia of the coracobrachialis muscle (Ortiz et al., 2009; Stanching, 2016).
from the anteromedial surface of the shaft of the humerus, near the insertion of coracobrachialis and just above the origin of brachialis.
Caption: Figure 6: Axial T1 MRI: (1) humerus, (2) deltoid muscle, (3) coracobrachialis muscle, (4) teres major muscle, and (5) triceps muscle.
The posterior deltoid (innervated by the axillary nerve) will refer locally and into the posterior upper arm while the coracobrachialis (innervated by the musculocutaneous nerve) will refer in the posterolateral arm and forearm.
Muscles involved in amplexus, such as pectoralis, coracoradialis, coracobrachialis, flexor carpi radialis, extensor carpi radialis, sternoradialis and abductor indicus longus were found to be larger in males than in females (Oka et al.
The tip of the CP and the conjoined tendons (the short head of the biceps brachii and the coracobrachialis) were identified, and after splitting the tendons in line with the fibers, the CP was fully exposed.
The coracobrachialis functions as a static and dynamic stabilizer to the inferior part of the capsule during shoulder abduction and simultaneous elbow flexion.
The lateral cord innervates the biceps and coracobrachialis muscles via the musculocutaneous nerve.
