Description

 The Subscapular Nerves (nn. subscapulares), two in number, spring from the posterior cord of the plexus and through it from the fifth and sixth cervical nerves:

  • The upper subscapular (short subscapular), the smaller enters the upper part of the Subscapularis, and is frequently represented by two branches.
  • The lower subscapular supplies the lower part of the Subscapularis, and ends in the Teres major; the latter muscle is sometimes supplied by a separate branch.
