Atlas of Functional Shoulder Anatomy by Giovanni Di Giacomo, Nicole Pouliart, Alberto Costantini,

By Giovanni Di Giacomo, Nicole Pouliart, Alberto Costantini, Andrea de Vita

The anatomy of the shoulder is predicated on complicated joint biomechanics. the aim of this Atlas is to concentration the reader’s consciousness on a chain of bone, ligament, muscle and tendon buildings and ultrastructures in the shoulder on which merely the newest foreign literature has said in really expert journals. This Atlas additionally offers super high-definition photos of "targeted" sections bought from cadavers preserved utilizing state-of-art ideas. This detailed Atlas, using photos of significant visible impression, bargains a systematic message on a topical joint, utilizing easy yet devoted descriptive language.

Example text

The conoid ligament has a primary role in constraining both anterior and superior rotation and anterior and superior displacement of the clavicle. The trapezoid ligament contributes less constraint to movement of the clavicle in both the horizontal and the vertical planes, except when the clavicle moves in axial compression toward the acromion process. The various contributions of different ligaments to constraint change not only with the direction of joint displacement but also with the amount of loading and displacement.

The three portions of the muscle (superior, middle and inferior) insert in exactly the opposite order to the origin, forming a ‘twisting tendon’. This shape suggests different actions of the three portions of the muscle during arm motion Scapulothoracic Joint a b 19 20 Andrea De Vita et al. 2 Clinical Relevance Shoulder muscle forces are usually powerful stabilisers of the glenohumeral joint. However, muscle forces can also contribute to instability. Certain muscle forces decrease glenohumeral joint stability in end-range positions.

These muscle attachments are important in strengthening the AC ligaments and adding stability to the AC joint [11]. 3 cm [12]. 9 mm, respectively [13]. Several biomechanical studies have recently examined the function of the conoid and trapezoid ligaments in human cadaveric models [14–16]. The function of the coracoclavicular ligaments is to stabilise the clavicle at the scapula, with the conoid ligament primarily preventing anterior and superior clavicular displacement. The trapezoid ligament is the primary constraint against compression of the distal clavicle into the acromion.
