Objective. The aim of our paper is to present a rare variation of the suprascapular vein, its incidence and clinical significance.
Case Report. A rare case of a double suprascapular vein was observed in a digitalized human cadaver on Anatomage Table 5.0. The vein divided into two branches, one passing over the tr
ansverse scapular ligament, while the other one coursed underneath the ligament, inside the notch. Conclusion. This variation has major clinical importance as it is associated with the appearance of Suprascapular nerve entrapment syndrome.
