We dissected the shoulders of 20 human foetuses to anatomical study. The purpose of this study was to characterize the anatomical origin of the long head tendon of the muscle biceps brachii (LHBBT) in human foetuses and its relationships with the glenoid labrum of the scapula. The results had shown that in approximately 95% of the cases the tendon of the long head of the biceps brachii inserts in the region of the glenoid labrum. This origin seems to form, together with the glenoid labrum, an anatomical complex. We conclude that the almost totality of the LHBBT was originated in the glenoidal labrum. For us, this furthermore reinforce the importance and necessity of better clarifying the anatomical and clinical implications of the biceps/labrum complex.
