Abstract
The Buford complex is unusual variant of the glenohumeral joint. This complex is distinguished by a cord-like middle glenohumeral ligament that oriented directly form the superior labrum at the base of the biceps tendon and crosses the subscapularis tendon to insert on the humerus. There is no anterior-superior labral tissue present between this attachment and the mid-glenoid notch. This anatomical variation may lead the surgeon to confuse this complex with a sublabral hole, pathologic labral detachment, Bankart lesion or SLAP lesion. We report a case of Buford complex which was found incidentally during the operation of impingement syndrome with stiffness and treated with subacromial decompression only.
Key Words: Buford complex, Impingement syndrome, Subacromial decompression,
