Scapula: The scapula is a thick flat bone that helps to form the shoulder and the pectoral girdle by articulating with the clavicle and the humerus of the arm. There is one pair of scapulas located in the upper outer portions of the back. The scapula creates many attachment points for muscles, creates form and structure for the shoulder, allows for the flexible movement of the shoulder and protects some of the back areas of the ribs. It also stores some minerals, such as calcium and phosphorus.
The scapula is a part of the appendicular skeleton. Conditions that can afflict the scapula include trauma, fracture, dislocation, osteomyelitis and winged scapula.
