Entrapment of the suprascapular nerve by the inferior transverse scapular ligament or spinoglenoid ligament (SGL) has been discussed frequently in the literature, but it has not been well documented anatomically. Therefore the mechanism of entrapment is not well understood. When isolated atrophy and denervation of the infraspinatus muscle have been noted, compression of the muscle's motor branch at the spinoglenoid notch has been implicated. This anatomic and morphologic study investigates the… CONTINUE READING
