  1. Anatomy of Shoulder Complex Dr. FadelNaim Orthopedic Surgeon Faculty of Medicine IUG-Gaza

  2. Trapezius • Origin • Medial third superior nuchal line on the occipital bone • External occipital protuberance • Ligament nuchae • Spine of 7th cervical vertebra • Spinous processes and supraspinous ligaments to T12 • INSERTION • Upper fibers to lateral third of posterior border of clavicle • Middle fibers to medial acromion and superior lip of spine of scapula • Lower fibers to medial end of spine of scapula • Action • Laterally rotates, elevates and retracts scapula. • If scapula is fixed, extends and laterally flexes neck • Nerve • Motor fibers form spinal accessory nerve (Cranial nerve XI) • Sensory fibers spinal nerves C3 and C4

  3. Levator Scapulae • Origin • Posterior tubercles of transverse processes of C1-4 • INSERTION • Upper part of medial border of scapula opposite the supraspinous fossa • Action • Raises medial border of scapula • In conjunction with middle fibers of trapezius and rhomboids, pulls the scapula medially and upward • Nerve • Anterior primary rami of C3 and C4 and dorsal scapular nerve (C5)

  4. Rhomboid Minor • Origin • Lower ligamentum nuchea • Spines of C7 and T1 • INSERTION • Small area of posteromedial border of scapula at level of spine, below levator scapulae • Action • Elevates the medial border of the scapula and pulls it medially • Nerve • Dorsal scapular nerve (C5)

  5. Rhomboid Major • Origin • Spines of T2-T5 and supraspinous ligaments • INSERTION • Lower half of posteromedial border of scapula, opposite the infraspinous fossa • Action • Elevates the medial border of the scapula and pulls it medially • Nerve • Dorsal scapular nerve (C5) (from root )

  6. Deltoid • ORIGIN • Anterior fibers: Lateral third of clavicle • Middle fibers: Acromion • Posterior fibers: spine of scapula to deltoid tubercle • INSERTION • Deltoid tuberosity • Middle of lateral surface of humerus • ACTION • Abducts arm • anterior fibers flex and medial rotate • posterior fibers extend and lateral rotate • NERVE • Axillary nerve (C5, 6) (from posterior cord) Forms the rounded contour of the shoulder

  7. Supraspinatus • Origin • Medial three quarters of supraspinous fossa of scapula • Upper surface of spine • INSERTION • Superior facet on greater tuberosity of humerus • Capsule of shoulder joint • Action • Abducts arm • Stabilizes shoulder joint • Nerve • Suprascapular nerve

  8. Infraspinatus • Origin • Medial three quarters of infraspinous fossa of scapula • INSERTION • Middle facet of greater tuberosity of humerus • Capsule of shoulder joint • Action • Laterally rotates arm • Stabilizes shoulder joint • Nerve • Suprascapular nerve

  9. Teres Minor • Origin • Middle third lateral border of scapula above teres major • INSERTION • Inferior facet of greater tuberosity of humerus (below infraspinatus) • Capsule of shoulder joint • Action • Laterally rotates arm • Stabilizes shoulder joint • Nerve • Axillary nerve

  10. Pectoralis Minor • Origin 3, 4, 5 ribs • INSERTION • Medial and upper surface of coracoid process of scapula • Action • Elevates ribs if scapula fixed • Pulls shoulder downward and forward • Nerve • Medial pectoral nerve (from medial cord of brachial plexus)

  11. Quadrangular spaceTriangular space Triangular interval

  12. Quadrangular space • It is bounded: • Superiorly by: • Subscapularis • Teres minor • Inferiorly by: • Teres major • Medially by: • Long head of triceps • Laterally by: • Humerus The axillary nerve and the posterior circumflex humeral vessels pass backward through this space

  13. Triangular space • an area of communication between the axilla and the posterior scapular region • formed by: • the medial margin of the long head of triceps brachii • the superior margin of teres major • the inferior margin of teres minor The circumflex scapular artery and vein pass through this gap

  14. Triangular interval • formed by: • the lateral margin of the long head of triceps brachii; • the shaft of the humerus; • the inferior margin of teres major The radial nerve, the profundabrachii artery and associated veins pass through it

  15. Quadrangular space syndrome • Hypertrophy of the quadrangular space muscles or fibrosis of the muscle edges may impinge on the axillary nerve. • Uncommonly, this produces weakness of the deltoid muscle. • Typically it produces atrophy of the teres minor muscle • which may affect the control that the rotator cuff muscles exert upon shoulder movement

  16. Rotator Cuff Muscles • Four of the scapulohumeral muscles • Supraspinatus • Infraspinatus • Teres minor • Subscapularis • Referred to as SITS muscles • Called rotator cuff muscles because they form a musculotendinous cuff around the glenohumeral joint {Dynamic stabilizers (“cuff”)} • All except the supraspinatusare rotators of the humerus

  17. The tendons of the muscle blend with the fibrous capsule of the glenohumeral joint to form a musculotendinous rotator cuff, which reinforces the capsule on three sides: • Anteriorly • Superiorly • Posteriorly • The cuff is weakest antero-inferiorly, making shoulder dislocation most common in this direction.

  18. Injury to rotator cuff can occur in any of the following manners: • Acutely, following trauma; • As a result of chronic impingement and overuse (excessive abduction); • Compromised blood supply. • The most frequently injured tendon is the supraspinatus, probably because it is relatively avascular • Additionally, the supraspinatus tendon is subject to significant trauma as it is compressed between the acromion and the humeral head during abduction

  19. Impingement

  20. Types Of Acromion • Three distinct types of acromion can be seen on the angled outlet Y view: • The type I acromion, which is flat, is the "normal" acromion. • The type II acromion is more curved and downward dipping, • the type III acromion is hooked and downward dipping, obstructing the outlet for the supraspinatus tendon. • Cadaveric studies have shown an increased incidence of rotator cuff tears in persons with type II and type III acromions

  21. Rotator Cuff Injuries • Injury or disease may damage the musculotendinous rotator cuff, producing instability of the glenohumeral joint • Trauma may tear or rupture one or more of the tendons of the muscles forming the rotator cuff • Acute tears may occur when the arm is violently pushed into abduction • The patient reports a sharp pain in the anterosuperior part of the shoulder • Rotator cuff injuries are also common in persons with throwing activities • Rotator cuff tears also follow dislocation of the shoulder

  22. Degenerative tendonitis of the rotator cuff is common, especially in old people. • To test for this disease, the person is asked to lower the fully abducted limb slowly and smoothly. • From an approximately 90 ° abduction, the limb will suddenly drop to the side in an uncontrolled manner if the rotator cuff (especially the supraspinatus part) is diseased and torn • The injury often results from an indirect force to the abducted arm, such as a fall in a person older than 45 years • Acute tears are uncommon in young persons.

  23. This injury causes tenderness around the greater tubercle of the humerus and pain during 45 ° of passive abduction. • X-rays may be normal, but can reveal: • Narrowing of the distance between the acromion and humeral head (impingement) • Erosion of the inferior acromion • Sclerosis of the greater tuberosity

  24. 130° Subacromial Bursitis 50° • The tendon of the supraspinatus is separated from the coracoacromial ligament, acromion, and deltoid by the subacromial bursa. • Painful arc syndrome • When this bursa is inflamed abduction of the arm is extremely painful during the arc of 50 to 130 °. • The pain may radiate as far distally as the hand. • Acute pain is also felt lateral to the acromion. • A painful arc signifies an impingement of a painful structure during the movement of the humerus in relation to the roof of the shoulder

  25. The commonnest pathological situations causing painful arc are: • 1. Tendinitis of Supraspinatus • 2. Tendinitis of Infraspinatus • 3. Tendinitis of Subscapularis • 4. Tendinitis of the long head of the Biceps • 5. Subacromial Bursitis • 6. AC Sprain • Less frequent pathologies associated with a painful arc are: • metastases in the head of the humerus • metastases in the acromion • Instability of the shoulder

  36. The supraspinatus initiates abduction and the deltoid takes over once the humerus is abducted past 15 degrees • During full abduction of the arm we have to laterally rotate our humerus to move the greater tuberosity out of the way. • Even with this maneuver, space is too limited to allow for the range of motion that is seen in a normal individual. • The remainder of the range of motion is made possible by scapular rotation. • Once we have abducted the arm past 20 degrees or 30 degrees, for every 3 degrees of abduction at the glenohumeral joint, 1 degree occurs at the scapulothoracic surface and only 2 degrees occurs at the glenohumeral joint.
