Fig. 8-6. The musculotendinous (or rotator) cuff and the capsule of the shoulder joint, shown after cutting the cuff and removing the humerus. The tendons of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis blend with the capsule and form the cuff, which is incomplete below. The subscapular bursa communicates with the joint cavity (between the superior and middle glenohumeral ligaments). Click for high resolution image.
