Caption: Figure 1 Preoperative AP and axillary radiographs of the right shoulder demonstrating mild glenohumeral degenerative changes, acromial
enthesopathy, and hypertrophic ossification of the acromioclavicular joint.
Our study showed a mean acromial
length of 42 mm with SD of 5.

Submitted to the Hawkins test, that verifies the conflict between the supraspinous muscle tendon and the coracoid acromial
ligament, the patient A.

process, the greater trochanter, just anterior to the midline of the knee, and slightly anterior to lateral malleolus.
Inicialmente, realizou-se a afericao da dobra cutanea Tricipital, onde a referencia anatomica foi o processo acromial
da escapula e o processo olecraniano da ulna.
After fusion of the two primary ossification centres, secondary cartilage develops directly from mesenchymal tissue at the sternal and acromial
In 1949, the first clinical application of a flap from the shoulder (charretera" or acromial
flap) was performed by Kazanjian and Converse8.
The height of normal subacromial space, from the coraco- acromial
arch to the HH, is only 1-1.
The lateral or acromial
end is flattened from above downward.
The angle formed by the two processes of the scapula, the dorsally projected scapular process and the ventromedially projected acromial
process, is around 115 degrees (Fig.
The PHCA can further anastomose with the deltoid branch of thoracoacromial artery (ramus deltoideus arteriae thoracoacromialis) and the acromial
branches of suprascapular artery (rami acromiales
7) The delivery of the posterior arm reduces the presenting fetal diameter from the larger bisacromial diameter to the smaller axillo acromial
Limbs length were measured from the right side of body in standing position by using anatomic landmarks: upper leg length, the distance between the lateral condyle of the femur and greater trochanter, lower leg length, the distance between the lateral malleolus of the fibula and the lateral condyle of the tibia, and upper arm length, the distance between the lateral epicondyle of the humerus and the acromial
process of the scapula.
On radiographies, the sternal part is larger and is observed over the acromial
part (1, 2).
