The needle was inserted in a plane with the US probe at the intersection between the clavicle and the coracoid process. The axillary artery and chords of the nerves were identified.
At 3 months' follow-up, bony union of the left coracoid process was observed and the hook plate was removed.
In SOV MR images, SSB typically appeared as a saddlebag-shaped hyperintense area between the inferior surface of the coracoid process and the superior margin of the SSC [Figure 1]d.
The coracoid process is a key connection between the scapula and the clavicle and an important anchor in the coracoacromial arch; it is part of the superior shoulder suspensory complex (SSSC) as proposed by Goss et al.
The coracoid process landmark lies approximately 4.4 centimeters when the shoulder is in the neutral position, about 6.2 centimeters when the shoulder is at 45[degrees] of external rotation.
Vertebrae are affected in approximately 10% of all cases, while the humerus, acetabulum, talus, calcaneus, metacarpus and scapula, together with coracoid process (CP) represent atypical localizations (7,9,10).
The suprascapular notch is a depression on the lateral part of superior border of scapula running medial to the coracoid process. The suprascapular nerve passes through the suprascapular notch which is converted into foramen by superior transverse scapular liga-ment.1 The suprascapular nerve provides motor inner-vation to the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscles in addition to branches to the coracohumeral and cora-coacromial ligaments subacromial bursa and the acromioclavicular joint.
Usually coracobrachialis muscle arises from the apex of the coracoid process, together with the tendon of the short head of the biceps, and also by muscular fibres from the proximal 10 cm of this tendon.
Other radiographic views that may be helpful include an anteroposterior radiograph with the arm in internal rotation [19], an apical oblique view with the beam angled towards the glenoid face as described by Garth and colleagues [20], and a Stryker notch view obtained with the patients arm on top of the head and the beam centered over the coracoid process directed 10 degrees cephalad.
Metastatic breast carcinoma of the coracoid process: two case reports.
The shoulder is commonly approached through an incision of approximately 10-15 cm extending from the coracoid process to the distal insertion of the deltoid muscle.
