|Ligament: Coracohumeral ligament|
|The left shoulder and acromioclavicular joints, and the proper ligaments of the scapula. (Coracohumeral visible at center right.)|
|Gray's||subject #83 318|
|From||coracoid process (scapula)|
|To||greater tubercle of humerus|
It arises from the lateral border of the coracoid process, and passes obliquely downward and lateralward to the front of the greater tubercle of the humerus, blending with the tendon of the supraspinatus muscle.
This ligament is intimately united to the capsule by its posterior and lower border; but its anterior and upper border presents a free edge, which overlaps the capsule.
