Morphometric analysis of coracoid process of scapula with special emphasis on its clinical and forensic implications

Author: RANJANA.V , KARTHIK GANESH MOHANRAJ
Abstract: The coracoid process is a hook shaped bone structure projecting anterolaterally from the superior aspect of the scapular neck. Surgeons often refer to this as the “lighthouse of the shoulder”. It serves as a critical anchor for many tendinous and ligamentous attachments. Comprehension of standard morphometric details of the coracoid process is vital in traumatic cases, surgical interventions and replacement surgeries in the shoulder region. The aim was to study the morphological and morphometrical analysis of the coracoid process of scapula with special importance to its clinical and forensic application. The study was carried out in 17 left scapula and 16 right scapula bones. In this study, the mean diameter of the left coracoid process of the scapula ranges from 23.04 mm to 31.06 mm and the mean diameter of the right coracoid process of scapula ranges from 22.03 mm to 29.06 mm. The mean diameter value of the left coracoid process measures 26.4025 ± 0.3034 and the mean diameter of the right coracoid process measures 25.551 ± 0.2796. The data will be useful in medicolegal, anthropological and archeological studies. For complete understanding of the mechanism of the shoulder joint, the knowledge of the anatomical parameters of the coracoid process is very essential.
