This is a strong, flat band that crosses over the superior aspect of the fibrous capsule of the shoulder joint. It attaches to the lateral part of the base of the coracoid process and crosses the shoulder joint to attach to the anterior surface of the greater tubercle of the humerus, where it blends with the fibrous capsule of the shoulder and the tendon of the supraspinatus.
Stabilizes the shoulder joint. Limits downward displacement of the joint.
