Afterwards, the SSA meet the SSN, and when they reached the suprascapular notch they passed inferior to the STSL in parallel and entered into the suprascapular fossa (Fig.
The relationship between SSA and STSL also has been reported by many authors (Chen & Adds, 2011; Polguj et al., 2015).
Type I is typified by a single suprascapular nerve passing between the STSL and ACSL (seven shoulders, 14%).
Piyawinijwong and Tantipoon  suggested that the presence of the ACSL (especially Type II and Type III according to their classification) could reduce the space available below the STSL and possibly cause suprascapular nerve entrapment.
In present study, we found 12.5% incidence of completely ossified STSL which is close to findings of Jadhav et al  (10.57%).
We also found 21.87% incidence of partially ossified STSL in our study which is more than findings of Edelson et al  (8.1%), Mahto R K et al  (10.66%), Dunkengrun et al  (12%), Ticker et al  (18%) & Silva et al  (19.6%), but less than Polguj et al  (23.3%) & Mistry P et al  (25%).
Aims and Objectives: The aim of this study was to see the incidence of the ossified superior transverse scapular ligament (STSL) on dried Pakistani scapulae
The scapulae were closely observed for the presence of ossified STSL.
There was no statistically significant difference in STSL
length or in the thicknesses of the lateral and medial extremities between the halves of the body (P [greater than or equal to] 0.05).
provided local sea turtle conservation groups with educational material for distribution to beachfront hotels, restaurants, condominiums, retail stores, and realtors.
Potential anatomical reasons which predispose a patient to SNES include the shape of the suprascapular notch ; band-shaped , bifurcated , or completely ossified  STSL
; the presence of the anterior coracoscapular ligament  or spinoglenoid ligament [25, 27]; the course of the suprascapular nerve and vessels ; the structural type of the inferior transverse scapular ligament (ITSL) [29, 30]; hypertrophy of the infraspinatus muscle .
The suprascapular notch is roofed by the superior transverse scapular ligament (STSL
) converting it into foramen in some species (Khan, 2006).
