The acromioclavicular joint , or AC joint , is a joint at the top of the shoulder. It is the junction between the acromion part of the scapula that forms the highest point of the shoulder and the clavicle. Superior Acromioclavicular Ligament This ligament is a quadrilateral band, covering the superior part of the articulation, and extending between the upper part of the lateral end of the clavicle and the adjoining part of the upper surface of the acromion. It is composed of parallel fibers, which interlace with the aponeuroses of the Trapezius and Deltoideus; below, it is in contact with the articular disk when this is present.
