Subcoracoid bursa

Subcoracoid bursa is a bursa located in between subscapularis and the conjoined tendons of coracobrachialis and short head of biceps. It should be differentiated from subscapularis recess that does not extend as caudal as the subcoracoid bursa. Fluid in the bursa does not normally communicate with the joint unlike subscapularis recess.
