Özet

Objective: Although suprascapular nerve entrapment is rare, the most common site of compression is the suprascapular notch. The anterior coracoscapular ligament (ACSL), which lies inferior to the superior transverse scapular ligament (STSL), may also be a cause of entrapment. We aimed to investigate the presence of ACSL and its relations to the suprascapular nerve and vessels.
