About this book


The purpose of this Atlas is to focus the reader's attention on a series of bone, ligament, muscle and tendon structures and ultrastructures that have not so far been discussed except in the most recent international literature and in specialist journals. This Atlas also presents extremely high-definition images of "targeted" sections obtained from cadavers preserved using state-of-the-art techniques.

The authors' intention is to present the shoulder anatomy in a new and original way and, using a simple but dedicated descriptive language, to help the reader understand the complexity of scientific research, highlighting the importance of integrating anatomical, biomechanical and neurophysiological knowledge.

The text is intended as a complement to the most recent and current anatomical studies in scientific research, bringing out the importance of those miniscule structures to which precise and clear mechanical and neurological roles are now being attributed.
