Medial border of scapula
|Bone: Medial border of scapula|
|Left scapula. Dorsal surface. (Medial angle visible at upper right.)|
|Surface anatomy of the back. (Medial border not labeled, but is visible near arrows for trapezius and rhomboideus major.)|
|Latin||margo medialis scapulae|
|Gray's||subject #50 206|
This border presents an anterior and a posterior lip, and an intermediate narrow area.
The anterior lip affords attachment to the Serratus anterior; the posterior lip, to the Supraspinatus above the spine, the Infraspinatus below; the area between the two lips, to the Levator scapulæ above the triangular surface at the commencement of the spine, to the Rhomboideus minor on the edge of that surface, and to the Rhomboideus major below it; this last is attached by means of a fibrous arch, connected above to the lower part of the triangular surface at the base of the spine, and below to the lower part of the border.
