These last three years we have operated 8 cases of suprascapular nerve neurolysis at the level of suprascapular incision, and section of the transverse scapular ligament through the back supraspinal approach. Keywords: Suprascapular nerve; neuropathy; neurolysis; suprascapular notch. Anatomy The suprascapular nerve (SS) is a motor nerve originating from C5 and C6 nerve roots. It is the only lateral branch of the lateral upper trunk of the brachial plexus. It passes through the suprascapular notch which is covered by the transverse scapular ligament into the supraspinous fossa where it supplies the supraspinatus muscle.

The lack of lymphatics in nerve fascicles might render the removal of endoneurial fluid di‰cult. Perineurium creates a fluid environment around the nerve fibres of optimal composition for transmission of electrical impulses [1]. Early and late oedema of the vasogenic type is associated with elevated endoneurial fluid pressure and microcirculatory disturbances. Proliferation of fibroblasts, changes in the composition of the matrix and collagen formation may result in endoneurial fibrosis at the site of the lesion and distal to it.
