OSUAGWU, F. C.; IMOSEMI, I. O.  and  SHOKUNBI, M. T.. Complete Ossification of the Superior Transverse Scapular Ligament in a Nigerian Male Adult . Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2005, vol.23, n.2, pp.121-122. ISSN 0717-9502.

Complete ossification of the superior transverse scapular ligament is generally considered to be rare and has not been previously described in a Nigerian. In the diagnosis of suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome, variations in the anatomy of the superior transverse scapular ligament must be considered as possible etiologic factors, as illustrated by this case report

Keywords : Superior transverse scapular ligament; Ossification; Entrapment neuropathy.
