- Coracoclavicular ligament
Ligament: Coracoclavicular ligament The left shoulder and acromioclavicular joints, and the proper ligaments of the scapula. Glenoid fossa of right side. Latin ligamentum coracoclaviculare Gray's subject #82 315 From coracoid process To clavicle Dorlands/Elsevier l_09/12492010
The Coracoclavicular Ligament serves to connect the clavicle with the coracoid process of the scapula.
It does not properly belong the acromioclavicular joint articulation, but is usually described with it, since it forms a most efficient means of retaining the clavicle in contact with the acromion. It consists of two fasciculi, called the trapezoid ligament and conoid ligament.
These ligaments are in relation, in front, with the Subclavius and Deltoideus; behind, with the Trapezius.
