Transverse Ligament of Humerus

The transverse ligament of the humerus consists of a narrow sheet of connective tissue fibers that runs between the lesser and the greater tubercles of the humerus (upper arm bone). Together with the intertubercular groove of the humerus, the ligament creates a canal (retinaculum) through which the long head of the biceps brachi muscle passes.
