Table 1 Measurements of the glenoidal attachment of the articular capsule

From: Anatomic analysis of the whole articular capsule of the shoulder joint, with reference to the capsular attachment and thickness

Measurement locations Average width and standard deviation (mm)
Anterior part of the glenoidal edge at 3 o’clock (G1) 5.6 ± 0.5
Anterior edge of origin of long head of triceps brachii (G2) 7.6 ± 0.3
Superior part of origin of long head of triceps brachii (G3) *4.6 ± 0.2
Posterior edge of origin of long head of triceps brachii (G4) 6.0 ± 0.3
Posterior part of the glenoidal edge at 9 o’clock (G5) 6.1 ± 0.3
  1. Measurement locations are shown in Fig. 4. G3 (asterisk) was significantly narrower than only G2 (P = .022 by ANOVA with Tukey-Kramer post-hoc test)
