BACKGROUND Various findings in the lateral rotator interval to support the long head of the biceps tendon have been reported. The purpose of this study was to clarify the functional anatomy regarding the stabilization of the biceps tendon. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty embalmed shoulders were used for anatomic study, and 5 specimens of the anterosuperior part of the glenohumeral joint were histologically studied. RESULTS Anatomically, the most superior part of the subscapularis tendon was… CONTINUE READING
