Abstract

The medial coracoclavicular ligament (MCCL), up to now rarely reported in the literature, was studied in a formol-fixed cadaver by means of dissection, morphometry, and light microscopy. This entity represents a true ligament within the coracoclavicular fascia. Although longer and narrower than its lateral counterpart, the medial coracoclavicular ligament follows the same morphological pattern, including the cartilage at the level of the coracoidal attachment. Its clinical significance and implications together with a review of the literature is presented.
