The subscapular fossa shows in its lower half a number of branching vascular impressions, which mark the course of branches of the subscapular artery. The anterior edge of the bone is also appropriately termed the coracoid edge, since it is terminated inferiorly by the coracoid process. In its upper half this edge is convex, blunt, and rough, but in its lower half it is thin, smooth, and concave. The posterior edge, also called the glenoid edge, because it conducts at its lower end to the glenoid cavity, is slightly concave. At its extreme Fig. 63.--Eight Scapula Of Horse (Outer Surface). 1.
