Secondly, this measurement is reliable only if the coracoid process, LHBT, and medial epicondyle of humerus and LHBT are intact as was the case in our subjects.

1A.) The resulting radiograph shows the relationship of the glenoid fossa and the head of the humerus as well as the coracoid process. (See Fig.
The brachial plexus and its components are vulnerable to damage as they pass the base of the coracoid process and adjacent inferior capsule of the glenohumeral joint, particularly with anteroinferior instability (Ciullo 1996).
Affected areas include the articular and spinous processes of the vertebrae, the glenoid fossa and coracoid process of the scapulae, the distal articular surface of the radius, the margin of the greater sciatic notch of the pelvic bones, and the condyles of the femora and tibiae (Table 4).
A computed tomographic (CT) scan showed a sharply demarcated lesion in the base of the coracoid process with a high-density nidus (Figure 1, right).
(A-C = Acromial Clavicular Joint; C = Coracoid Process; GT = Greater Tubercle of the Humerus.)
This flat, triangular bone has two surfaces (costal and dorsal), three margins (superior, lateral and medial), three angles (superior, inferior and lateral) and three bony projections (spine, acromion and coracoid process).
The tip of acromion gives attachment to the coracoacromial ligament, the medial end of which is attached to the posterolateral margin of the coracoid process. Thus the undersurface of anterior third of the acromion process, the coracoacromial ligament and the coracoid process form together the coracoacromial arch, which provides a hood-like protection for the shoulder joint.
Computed tomography of the left shoulder showed a bony lesion involving the left clavicle protruding in the posteroinferior direction, adhering to the coracoid process of the scapula; the subclavian artery was located under the tumor (Figures 1(c) and 1(d)).
The ACSL attaches proximally to the anteromedial surface of the root of the coracoid process. The ligament is located anteriorly to the suprascapular foramen and below the STSL (Figure 4).
