    - note that in younger patients the AC joint cartilage (and meniscus) is normally wide and therefore, it is not necessary to resect the usual 1 to 1.5 cm of distal clavicle;

- Case Examples:

    - supraspinatus fossa:
          -  the posterior border of the coracoid process drops right down into the supraspinatus fossa
