Abstract: We studied the origin of the anterior deltoid from the lateral third of the clavicle and the leading anterior edge of the acromion in 18 cadaver shoulders by anatomical and histological methods. The main origin of the deltoid was from the superior surface of the anterior acromion, but muscle and tendinous attachments were also seen on the entire anterior surface of the acromion, its anteroinferior surface and on the whole width of the anterior surface of the clavicle. Mock arthroscopic acromioplasty was shown to detach deltoid fibres from the anterior surfaces, leaving the superior attachment in continuity. Potentially, arthroscopic subacromial and clavicular resection can detach deltoid fibres originating from the anterior and anteroinferior surfaces of the acromion and clavicle and thus weaken the anterior deltoid.
