From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Infraspinous fascia
Muscles on the dorsum of the scapula, and the Triceps brachii. (Fascia not labeled, but Infraspinatous visible near center.)
Latin fascia infraspinata
Gray's subject #123 441

The infraspinatous fascia is a dense fibrous membrane, covering the Infraspinatous muscle and fixed to the circumference of the infraspinatous fossa; it affords attachment, by its deep surface, to some fibers of that muscle.

It is intimately attached to the deltoid fascia along the over-lapping border of the Deltoideus.
