The clavicle is shaped like the letter S, and is placed transversely at the upper part of the thorax. It is articulated, at one extremity, with the sternum; at the other with the acromion process of the scapula. It gives attachment, above, to the Sterno-cleido mastoideus; below, to the Subclavius; before, to the Pectoralis major and Deltoides; and behind, to the Trapezius. It serves as a point of support for the muscles of the arm, and protects the vessels and nerves passing to that extremity. The fibres, connecting the lamellae or plates of bones, have also been called Clavic'uli or Nails.
