What attaches to Conoid tubercle?

Conoid tubercle (tuberculum conoide-um) is a bump on the inferior surface of the bone, near the acromial end. It is an attachment point for the conoid ligament. The conoid ligament is a part of the coracoclavicular ligament, which attaches the clavicle to the coracoid process of the scapula.

People also ask, what is the Conoid tubercle?

The conoid tubercle also known as the coracoid tuberosity (not to be confused with the coracoid process of the scapula) is a bony prominence on the inferior surface of the lateral third of the clavicle.

Also, what does the Conoid ligament do? The conoid ligament limits anterior movement of the scapula with respect to the clavicle. The trapezoid limits posterior movement between these two bones. Both ligaments prevent the clavicle from overriding the lateral end of the clavicle.

Simply so, what attaches to coracoid process?

It is the site of attachment for several structures: The pectoralis minor muscle – to 3rd, 4th, 5th and on some rare occasions, 6th rib. The short head of biceps brachii muscle – to Radial tuberosity. The coracobrachialis muscle – to medial humerus.

Which muscles attach to the clavicle?

Two muscles are attached to the lateral third of the clavicle:

  • The trapezius muscle, which is attached along the posterior surface of the bone.
  • The deltoid muscle, where the anterior portion of the muscle is attached to the periosteum at the anterior surface of the bone.
