The transverse humeral ligament
is a broad band passing from the lesser to the greater tubercle of the humerus
, and always limited to that portion of the bone which lies above the epiphysial line
It converts the intertubercular groove into a canal, and is the homologue of the strong process of bone which connects the summits of the two tubercles in the musk ox.
Eponym: Gordon Brodie's ligament.
