[The role of soft tissues in downward stability of the glenohumeral joint--an experimental study with fresh cadavers].


Inferior stabilizing mechanism was studied after anatomical dissection of vertical stabilizing tissues in 98 fresh shoulder joints from human autopsies and measuring relative restraint by stabilizing tissues in 8 fresh shoulder specimens from monkeys. This results demonstrated that the coracohumeral ligament and supraspinatus tendon were most important… (More)
