Glenohumeral Joint and Labrum Glenoidale


Labrum glenoidale increases an extension of the contact of a head of a humerus with a cotyle, and in this way it participates in stabilization of the whole articulation. But labrum glenoidale does not have a deciding function for the stabilization of the shoulder joint. Muscles are the main things for the stabilization of the glenohumeral articulation. It is worth mentioning  that in the closeness of the labrum glenoidale the long head of the biceps is attached to tuberculus supragleonoidalis scapulae.
