Abstract

Two hundred eleven adult scapulae were examined and quantitative data pertaining to the dimensions of the suprascapular notch were obtained. Six types of suprascapular notch were observed. Transitions tended to occur between Types II, III, and IV. A classification function was developed utilizing the measured values of the dimensions of the suprascapular notch, which might help in assigning the scapulae to these transitional types. Dissections of the suprascapular area were performed in 15 cadavers. Static and dynamic relationships of the suprascapular nerve to the suprascapular foramen were examined.
