In the current study the lower scapular angle was 58.7 [degrees], the upper scapular angle was 95.5 [degrees], the distance between supraglenoid tubercle and SN was 28.2 mm, SN width 8.3 mm and depth 6.5 mm.
While some authors (Davidson and Rivenburgh 2004) suggest that a mobile superior glenoid labrum overlying a smooth supraglenoid tubercle is a common morphologic variant, others suggest that it is an age-related change as cadaveric studies (Clavert et al 2005, Pfahler et al 2003) found an increase in the nonpathological "mobile labrum" type after 30 years of age.
The long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon arises from the posterior superior glenoid labrum and the supraglenoid tubercle and is ensheathed by synovial lining allowing it to be intra-articular yet extrasynovial [1, 2].
At the twelve o'clock position, the superior labrum inserts directly into the long head of the biceps tendon, distal to the insertion of the biceps onto the supraglenoid tubercle. In addition, the articular cartilage of the glenoid extends five millimeters over the edge of the rim, with a synovial reflection, which creates a normal recess beneath the long head of the biceps and the superior labrum.
* The acromioglenoid distance is the space between tip of acromion process and the supraglenoid tubercle (fig.
The prominent supraglenoid tubercle (tuberculum supraglenoidalis) in the present observation is projected cranially and distal to the incisura scapulae which was similar and dissimilar with horse and cattle respectively (Sisson et al.).
In both of these cases, one limb of the long head of the biceps was attached to the supraglenoid tubercle and the other to the posterosuperior capsulolabral tissue.
