--- medial;
--- is formed by the subscapularis , the tere major
and the long head of triceps.
5. The medial wall
пЃ® is formed by the first four ribs with their
corresponding intercostal muscles and
the upper part of the serratus anterior.
6. The lateral wall
пЃ® is a narrow space
where the anterior and posterior walls converge.
пЃ® is formed by the intertubercular sulcus of the humerus,
the two heads of biceps and the coracobrachialis.

пЃ® To situate partly posterior to the upper portion of the
pectoralis minor and partly under the clavipectoral
fascia which is along first part of the axillary vein;
пЃ® To receive the lymph from the upper part of the
mammary gland and the efferents of all the other
axillary lymph nodes;
пЃ® The afferents of these nodes unite to form the
subclavian trunk.
пѓ“ . The humeromuscular tunnel
пЃ® It is formed by three heads of triceps brachii
and the sulcus for radial nerve of humerus.
пЃ® It extends downwards from the medial to the
lateral side of the back of middle part of the
пЃ® It transmits the radial nerve and the deep
brachial vessels.
